Hilary Davan Wetton has been artistic director and principal conductor of the City of London Choir since 1989. One of the country’s most distinguished choral conductors, he was founder/conductor of the Holst Singers, and is conductor emeritus of the Guildford Choral Society and artistic director of Leicester Philharmonic Choir. He is also associate conductor of the London Mozart Players and conductor emeritus of the Milton Keynes City Orchestra. He studied conducting with Sir Adrian Boult and was awarded the Ricordi conducting prize in 1967. Over a career spanning fifty years, he has been particularly admired for his performances of twentieth-century British music. He has conducted many first performances for British composers as well as neglected works by Parry, Holst, Dyson, Bridge, Sterndale Bennett and Samuel Wesley, many of which he has recorded. His extensive discography includes Holst’s Choral Symphony (which won the Diapason d’Or), Holst’s Planets and Elgar’s Enigma Variations with the LPO for Collins Classics, and acclaimed discs for Naxos and EM Records with the City of London Choir.
