We are excited to announce that David Crown has been appointed as the new Music Director of the Cheltenham Bach Choir, Cheltenham’s leading choir, and one of the foremost choral societies in the South West of England. David is a highly experienced singer and musician: following a Choral Scholarship at King’s College, Cambridge he embarked on a career as soloist in opera and oratorio, while building a considerable reputation as singing teacher. David is also Music Director of the Reading Phoenix Choir and of the vOx Chamber Choir in Oxford, where he now teaches at the University.

Susan Gargett, Chairman of the Cheltenham Bach Choir, said “We are delighted to welcome David to the Cheltenham Bach Choir as we approach our seventieth anniversary. We are particularly looking forward to the leadership and insights of such an experienced singer. The choir has gone from strength to strength in recent years, and we expect David will help us to build on this momentum as we move into our eighth decade.”
