Lancaster Singers appoint new Musical Director to start in January 2015

Lancaster Singers are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Musical Director, Duncan Lloyd, whose biography is below.

Duncan Lloyd began his musical career as a chorister at Southwell Minster under the tutelage of Kenneth Beard. As a violinist, he played with the internationally renowned Nottingham Orchestra directed by Christopher Adey and read Music at Manchester University. He has a PGCE from Durham, a Diploma in Education Management from Sheffield Hallam and his NPQH.

Duncan has thirty years teaching experience, most recently as Director of Music at The Minster School Southwell. He co-wrote the School’s successful bid for Specialist Music and Humanities status and ran the very successful Chorister Outreach Programme. During his sixteen years as a Tenor Lay Clerk, he founded The Ensemble of Southwell and the Djanogly Community Orchestra and Jazz Band, typeset the New Southwell Psalter and, with Simon Bell, founded The Minster Girls’ Choir. He composes and arranges and has recently had works performed by musical groups in Nottinghamshire and North Yorkshire.

Duncan has extensive experience as a conductor of both choral and orchestral groups and has led extremely successful concert tours throughout Europe. He played viola in the Pollyanna Quartet and has played both viola and violin in many leading ensembles in Nottinghamshire.

Duncan and his family relocated to North Yorkshire in August 2014 and he is very much looking forward to taking up his new role with the Lancaster Singers in 2015. He continues to work as a freelance instrumental and vocal teacher and has been acting Music Director at Kendal Parish Church since December 2014.
