Music Director - 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 for 10 years, he performed many times over in the world's most prestigious concert halls, and made countless recordings and broadcasts. He has worked with Julie Andrews, Placido Domingo and John Denver all at the same time, and once found himself (for TV) singing Christmas music on horseback at 8.30 am on a freezing October morning beside a lake in Yorkshire – wearing a monk's habit (don't ask!)
As a conductor you might expect to find that he has performed at the Royal Festival Hall, the Royal Albert Hall and St John's Smith Square (and you would be right). He has also directed performances at St Paul's Cathedral, St Mark's Venice, and the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. Less likely venues include St Pancras station, a Belfast shopping mall, and underground caves in Slovenia: not forgetting the performance of Mussorgsky's 'Night on a Bare Mountain' with full symphony orchestra on a beach in Jamaica. Did he break the world record for conducting the largest number of participants in Benjamin Britten's "Noye's Fludde" at Alexandra Palace in 2009? There were certainly several zoo's-worth of children……
Jeremy's compositions have been performed in concert halls around the world, and he was recently surprised to discover that his music has even reached the silver screen. His arrangement of Bach's 'Bist du bei mir' is featured on the French film 'Polisse', which won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011'
