One of the UK’s most dynamic conductors Greg Beardsell is Music Director of the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and the Wooburn Singers, Conductor of the Manchester Boys’ Choir and Associate Conductor of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. He has recently been appointed as the conductor of the Ulster Youth Choir.

Born in Harrogate and educated at Chetham’s School of Music and Manchester University (originally as a tuba player), Greg studied conducting with Michael Brewer and Gary Walker. Whilst at university, he held the directorship of the Chamber Choir, Ad Solem, for four years and conducted the Chamber Orchestra and the Symphony Chorus.

His previous posts also include Music Director of the Oxford Chamber Choir and until recently the Surrey Youth Choir, whom he led to the Grand Finals of the Sainsbury’s Choir of the Year. He was also the director of Opera Works, a company giving performance opportunities to young opera singers. Last year, he was the recipient of a BBC Singers conductor bursary.  

A large proportion of Greg’s time is devoted to tutoring on singing and choral courses including the Eton Choral Courses, the IAPS Choral Course and Harrogate Choral Week. He regularly leads workshops for children around the country on behalf of the National Youth Choir and the Association of British Choral Directors and has a continuing dedication to the teaching of choral music to people of all ages.  Greg is also in demand as an adjudicator and this year will be adjudicating at the Navan Choral Festival.

He has worked with the St. Endellion Festival Chorus, the BBC Symphony Chorus and the London Symphony Chorus and prepared works for conductors such as Marin Alsop and Richard Hickox. He has also directed the Sagittarian Consort of Cambridge, the Classical Soloists and the City of London Sinfonia.
