Recent concerts include Mendelssohn Elijah, Brahms Requiem, Rachmaninov Vespers, Copland In the Beginning and the première of Will Todd’s Passion Music.

Emily Dickens is an internationally established soprano and conductor. She read music at Trinity College, Cambridge before becoming a full-time member of the critically acclaimed British vocal ensemble VOCES8 with whom she performed in concert and conducted choirs all over the world. Emily is currently the Choral Conducting Fellow at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London where she directs the professional choirs in weekly services and concerts, and Director of the LSO Junior Choir.
