Singing Day 2020

David Newsholme
Music Director/Conductor

I greatly look forward to taking on the position of Musical Director of Whitstable Choral Society in January 2020. I will bring a wide range of musical expertise, and hope to share this with members of the choir and audience alike, creating an engaging and exciting artistic experience for all.

I began my musical career at Worcester Cathedral, where I was a chorister and, during my sixth-form years, a lay clerk. As well as singing at daily services and taking part in numerous broadcasts, recordings, and tours, I participated in the celebrated Three Choirs Festival. Singing much of the great choral repertoire with internationally-acclaimed conductors, soloists and orchestras was a formative experience for me. 

Whilst still a chorister…
