Since winning the prestigious Sainsbury’s Choir of the Year competition in 1988, Jeremy has led the Vasari Singers in regular performances at the South Bank and at St John’s, Smith Square in London, as well as in the cathedrals of Canterbury, Chichester, Winchester, Hereford, Ely, Peterborough and Westminster Abbey.
Jeremy is totally committed to contemporary music and to the commissioning of new works. He and Vasari have commissioned over 20 new works in their recent history, from small anthems, to works of the grandest scale: the most recent examples being an 80-minute oratorio by Francis Pott entitled The Cloud of Unknowing (2006), and a glorious Requiem from Gabriel Jackson (2008).
In January 1995, he was appointed Chorus Master of the Vivace Chorus (formerly the Guildford Philharmonic Choir). Jeremy has presented some ambitious programmes, including a thrilling performance of Mahler’s “Symphony of a Thousand” (No 8) and in November 2008 a stunning performance of Verdi’s Requiem. From September 1998 to December 2004, Jeremy was the Music Director of the Wooburn Singers, only the third conductor in the distinguished 30- year history of the choir, following Richard Hickox and Stephen Jackson.
In January 2009 Jeremy took up the post of Music Director of the Salisbury Community Choir, a 180-strong non-auditioned choir.
