Conductor – John Holland


John was born in Hastings in 1977, but was raised in Watford. He moved to south London in 2004 with his life partner, Chris, and they’re now happily settled down in Forest Hill in their own little place just around the corner from the world – famous Horniman Museum. John has been the conductor of Lambeth Wind Orchestra since 2008 and also directs the London Consorts of Winds Clarinet Choir, often invited to conduct freelance for special events. He is a member of BASCA, PRS and BASBWE, serving on the Executive Committee. His chamber orchestra piece ‘Green Sky’ won the Making Music Award at the British Composer Awards 2008. In April 2009, the world premiere of his ‘Requiem (Opus 15)’ took place at All Saints Church, West Dulwich and January 2010 saw the first performance of ‘The Something In – Between’, an Oboe/Cor Anglais mini-concerto, written for and performed by Isobel Williams. The London Saxophone Choir have presented several new pieces over the last few years, including ‘Mission: Improbable’ (2008) and, most recently, ‘Fanfaricus’ (2010). Several works for chamber orchestra have been performed and recorded by the London Contemporary Chamber Orchestra, notably ‘Hustle Bustle’ (2006) and ‘Elegy for my father’ (2007).

Thank you @standardnews I was really pleased to see this piece about the #ChessMusical revival next year. I was in a production soon after it became available for amateur companies and absolutely loved it; the music is complex and explosive, much more than the boring old game! 😉 JohnIvorHolland photo
