Jeremy Summerly, Guest Conductor

Jeremy Summerly took over the baton for the Society's first Messiah after Matthew Bale's retirement as Musical Director. His interpretation added a new dimension to the work for the choir, and we continue to relish different approaches under Will Dawes, the current Musical Director.

Jeremy is a conductor and musician of international standing, having given concert tours throughout Europe, the United States, southern Africa, and Australasia. He has conducted at the BBC Proms and at many festivals, including Aldeburgh.

He has conducted world premières of music by Sir John Tavener, Giles Swayne, and other leading contemporary composers, UK premières of music by Donatoni and Zielinski, and the London première of I Am The True Vine by Arvo Pärt.

He founded the Oxford Camerata in 1984, conducted Schola Cantorum of Oxford from 1990-96, was Director of Music at Christ Church Chelsea from 1999-2002, and Artistic Director of the Palladium Musicum Rome-Tivoli Festival in 2007; he has also acted as guest conductor for the Rundfunkchor Berlin, and The Tallis Chamber Choir.

As well as working with choirs, he founded the Oxford Camerata Instrumental Ensemble in 1992, the Royal Academy Consort in 2002, and the Oxford Camerata Baroque Orchestra in 2007. As a BBC Radio writer and presenter he has made programmes in locations all around the UK and abroad, and he has contributed articles to many publications including Early Music, The Musical Times, and BBC Music Magazine.

He has conducted almost fifty original recordings spanning the music of nine centuries, has edited four volumes of medieval and Renaissance music for Faber Music, and is Sterndale-Bennett Lecturer in Music at the Royal Academy of Music, where from 1996-2007 he was Head of Academic Studies.
