Greg Hallam is Assistant Music Director of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and director of their Boys’ Choir, who, last year, gave the premiere of Jonathan Dove’s cycle ‘Seasons and Charms’, funded by Friday Afternoons Music.
Greg gained his bachelor degree from the Royal College of Music where he studied voice with Ashley Stafford.
He went on to study Choral Conducting with Patrick Russill and Paul Brough at the Royal Academy of Music and was awarded an MA and LRAM, both with distinction.
Greg is Musical Director of Swansea Bach Choir, Bracknell Choral Society and works each summer with the Ulster Youth Choir. This year, Greg directed the first ever Junior Choral course for UYC, which attracted more than 80 members.
Greg is proud to have helped set-up the London Youth Choir with colleague Rachel Staunton in 2012, directing their boys’ choir and training choir for four years and delivering workshops as part of their ‘Aspire’ scheme.
As singing teacher at Wellington College and Christchurch Cathedral School, Oxford, Greg teaches individual lessons to young singers aged 8-18. In addition, he works closely with Worcester College; delivering regular workshops for the chapel choir and helping produce their two most recent recordings.
Greg has been working with Mahogony Opera Group as Music Director for their ‘Snappy Operas’ – teaching five newly-commissioned 10-minute operas to children in Cornwall.
He is set to work on these operas again in early 2018, this time in Durham.
