Performers

The Brandenburg Sinfonia is one of the most dynamically versatile musical organisations in the country. In recent years the orchestra has performed in the majority of the major venues across the country, and in London. Future tours include: France, Germany, USA, Japan and Hong Kong.

Andrew Earis is Director of Music at St Martin-in-the-Fields where he oversees the music programme at this busy London church. Recent performances include Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Beethoven Mass in C with Southbank Sinfonia. He is a graduate of the Royal College of Music and Imperial College, London, and holds a PhD from the University of Manchester. In addition to his duties at St Martin’s, Andrew is a regular contributor to BBC Radio’s religious output as a producer of programmes including Radio 4 Sunday Worship and Radio 3 Choral Evensong.

Multi prize-winning pianist Adam Johnson was a Scholar and Junior Fellow at The Royal Northern College of Music UK, performing under the baton of Kent Nagano, Martyn Brabbins, and George Hurst, making his Concerto debut aged 15 playing Mozart Piano Concerto No. 15 in Pavlovsk Palace, St. Petersburg, conducting from the piano. He furthered his piano studies with Prof. Peter Feuchtwanger who has described him as in possession of ‘an excellent technique and full of fantasy’.
Unique among the outstanding artists of his generation, Johnson is as equally at home conducting opera as he is fulfilling the role of soloist in concerto repertoire, playing chamber music, or directing his own large-scale compositions. Adam has given recitals throughout the world including Istanbul, New York, Northern Spain, Norway, and Rio da Janiero, not to mention his demanding schedule in the UK.
In 2008, he completed a Masters Degree in Conducting at The RNCM under the direction of Sir Mark Elder C.B.E, and was awarded the Ricordi Operatic Conducting Prize 2007. Adam is currently the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of The Northern Lights Symphony Orchestra. In 2011 he was elected as a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Musicians, and more recently was rewarded as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Musicians. Adam made his Wigmore Hall debut in October 2017.
