Conductor - Christopher Herrick

Christopher Herrick, one-time pupil of Sir Adrian Boult, has been the choir’s conductor since 1974. During this time he has been ambitious for the choir’s development, working with them to perform a huge range of repertoire alongside top-class instrumentalists and vocal soloists.

He has performed with them locally, as well as in Westminster Abbey, the Royal Albert Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields, St John’s Smith Square, Cadogan Hall and many exciting European venues.

Christopher combines choral conducting with his career as an international concert organist, and is one of the world’s most prolific recording artists in that field, being contracted exclusively to Hyperion Records.

Christopher has his own website.  https://www.christopherherrick.org/
