Performers

Since its foundation in 1957, the Tiffin Boys’ Choir has been one of the few state school choirs to have been continually at the forefront of the choral music scene in Britain. It has given the premiere performances of works by, among others, John Gardner, Christopher Brown, Elizabeth Poston and Antony Pitts, recorded widely for the major recording companies, and undertaken frequent concerts and tours in England and abroad.

Simon Toyne was a chorister in Exeter Cathedral Choir, a Music Scholar at Eton College, and the Organ Scholar of University College, Oxford. He is Assistant Head and Director of Music at Tiffin School. Under his direction, the Tiffin Boys’ Choir has worked with all the London orchestras and the Royal Opera, and has been conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Colin Davis, Bernard Haitink, Valery Gergiev and Mark Elder, among others.
