21 March 2018, 7.30pm, St Mary's Barnes

After a successful Brahms Requiem in 2017 the ECC return to the Festival, this time with Brahms Liebeslieder Walzer. Over the years the Choir has formed special relationships with certain composers, another one being the American James Sellars who died last year. This concert contains a tribute to him, with his Kissing Songs composed as a companion piece to the Brahms waltzes and also celebrates the centenary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, a close friend of Sellars.  The programme also includes Samuel Barber’s Adagio and begins with the anthem Heav’nly Harmony by local composer and Festival Patron Roxanna Panufnik.

English Chamber Choir

Saturday 2nd November 7.30pm

Robert Moffat

Chairman

Robert is a former general manager of The Sixteen and now works for National Opera Studio.  He’s sung tenor with us since the late ‘90’s.  His personal passion is for neglected 19thCentury choral works but, despite being chairman, remains thwarted in his attempts to persuade the ECC to sing Hiawatha.

Tim Johns

Vice-Chairman

Tim is a corporate communications consultant and executive coach based in the City.  He has been involved in singing since his days as a cathedral chorister.  He has sung baritone with the choir for over 15years although he has the annoying ability (and habit) to sing other parts as well.

Francois Boucard

Treasurer

 

Francois, who has sung tenor with us for 20 years, is a senior financial controller for a leading hedge fund, hence his appointment as our treasurer.  Originally from France, Francois took UK citizenship in 2016.

Simon Archer

Simon, and his wife, have both sung with us for over 5 years.  Previously they sang with the BBC Symphony Chorus but both joined the ECC because of the variety of repertoire and the enjoyment that comes from singing with a smaller ensemble.  Simon, by profession, is an Assistant Headteacher at a secondary school.

Hugh Joslin

Hugh has sung bass with us for nearly 30 years.  Managing Director of Media Contacts, a recruitment agency for the media industry, he prides himself on being possibly the only media recruiter with a music degree and a single-figure golf handicap.

Marianne Aston

Soprano Marianne, has sung with ECC for 18 years.  By profession she is an occupational psychologist, and she travels the world working with a variety of global clients.  Marianne is also our German pronunciation coach.

Martin Douglas

Martin has sung tenor with us for over 5 years and is librarian for our extensive choral music collection.  By day he is an IT consultant for a boutique consultancy, after many years with one of the Big Four accountancy firms.

Anne Johnson DBE

Anne started singing with the sopranos in the 1980s and, after a 20-year sabbatical, rejoined the choir 3 years ago.  By day she is a researcher and public health doctor.  She has served as a non-executive director of a number of health research charities and of an NHS trust.

Rosalind Scott-Douglas

 

Ros joined the choir in 2017 and sings soprano.  She has loved singing from an early age and has sung with several choirs, including the English Arts Chorale, the Exmoor Singers of London and the London Philharmonic Choir  When she isn't singing, Ros can usually be found in the City, where she works as an investment advisor to pension schemes.  

Mark Roper

Mark is one of our tenors; he joined ECC in 2016 having previously sung with New Sussex Opera, Sheffield Philharmonic, Brighton Festival Chorus and Twickenham Choral Society.  Frequently a soloist with us, Mark is by profession a Business Change specialist and director of a niche Change consultancy.
