WEEK ONE 29 July to 5 August
WEEK TWO 5 to 12 August
Jeremy Jackman There is no such thing as the musician who has done everything but then you glance at Jeremy Jackman’s career to date and you begin to wonder. As a member of the King’s Singers, he performed in the world’s most prestigious concert halls and made countless recordings and broadcasts. As a conductor he has worked in all the important concert halls and cathedrals. Less likely venues would include St Pancras station, a Belfast shopping mall and he underground caves in Slovenia, not forgetting a performance of Night on the
Bare Mountain on a beach in Jamaica. Did he break the world record for conducting the largest number of participants in “Noye’s Fludde” at Alexandra Palace in 2009? There were certainly several zoos worth of children… Jeremy is also a highly respected composer and arranger and his music has won accolades from performers and audiences alike the world over.
Simon Gregory studied music at Christ Church, Oxford under Simon Preston and Francis Grier and organ with Richard Popplewell, Nicholas Danby and Anne
