I am delighted to have been announced as Principal Conductor of the National Youth Training Choir for the next three years. I have had the great privilege of conducting this choir for a number of years and I am very excited to be continuing my relationship within this very special organisation. I look forward to developing the artistic and educational content of the residential courses and creating exciting performance opportunities for the choir.
