Dan Ludford-Thomas began singing as a chorister at St Matthew’s Church, Northampton, and in 1986 became ‘Choirboy of the Year’ which led to radio and television broadcasts, and concerts at many of the major venues throughout the UK.
As a tenor Dan won choral scholarships to Wells Cathedral and Durham Cathedral where he read music at the university. He is a member of the choir of St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street and has performed regularly with many major ensembles, including Chapelle du Roi, The Kings Consort, The Academy of Ancient Music, Florilegium, and The Sixteen.
Dan is in demand as a choral animateur, directing choral workshops and projects both in the UK and internationally. Recently he has conducted concerts in Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. He is at the forefront in the delivery of the national singing initiative ‘Singup’ in collaboration with Ex Cathedra, and is a pioneer in the development of new repertoire for young voices.
Dan is currently Head of Singing at Dulwich College, and is a singing teacher at Eton College. He is the Director of Music of Lewisham Choral Society, the Associate Conductor of The Hackney Singers as well as being Musical Director of Concordia Chamber Choir.
Concordia performs 3 concerts a year in and around Dulwich as well as the carol concert. The Spring concert will be at St John’s Upper Norwood on March 12th at 7.30. It will be of French music by Langlais, Debussy and Durufle. We are always interested to hear from prospective new members. Anyone wishing to try us out should ring Richard Robinson on 07929 906436.
