Named after Haydn’s patron, Prince Esterhazy, and with Haydn as its core composer, the Esterhazy Singers of London has established a reputation over its 40-year history for its performances of music in a wide range of styles from Renaissance polyphony to ambitious contemporary choral music. The Esterhazy Singers has been taken to new heights by choral specialist Esther Jones, also Deputy Director of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and part-time tutor at the Royal Academy of Music. The choir is looking forward to working with new musical director Andrea Brown. Former director of music at Morley College, Andrea recently completed a sabbatical at the Royal Academy of Music where she attained an MA in Choral Conducting. Andrea has devised and conducted a number of award-winning festivals and concert seasons.
James Gough graduated with a Master of Arts in Organ Performance from the Royal Academy of Music in 2009 and was the recipient of several Academy prizes including the Eric Thiman Organ Prize for solo organ. His talent as a solo recitalist has taken him all over Europe and to many of the UK’s most prestigious churches and cathedrals.
