Our next concert is Saturday, 5th December, at St John’s Waterloo. Mark your calendars now.
We say a big thank you and farewell to our current MD, Thomas Coltman, who is moving on after two years at the helm of Diversity Choir. Tom has led us through a number of successful concerts, and many other LGBT community events, and has introduced us to some exciting and challenging new repertoire, whilst also giving valuable advice on singing technique.
Tom will be taking some time over the next few months to concentrate on his singing career and to prepare for some opera opportunities, so we wish him every success with that, and hope to see him on the stage at Covent Garden or Glyndebourne before too long!
Meanwhile we are delighted to announce that our current AMD, Jan Rautio, will be stepping up to the podium as our new full time MD from Autumn 2015 onwards. Already a successful professional pianist, composer and performer with his Piano Trio, Jan is looking forward to adding choir leading to his portfolio. Jan already has some exciting ideas for future concerts, and we look forward to working with him in this new role!
