Graham Caldbeck  conductor

Graham Caldbeck is one of Britain’s leading conductors of amateur choirs, known for his wide-ranging musical skills, innovative programming and stylish performances.


He studied music at Trinity College, Cambridge, sang in the Cathedral Choirs of Guildford and Winchester, is a former Assistant Organist at St Martin-in-the-Fields and is currently Director of Music at St Mary The Boltons, SW10. For fifteen years Graham held senior positions at the Royal College of Music and he now pursues a freelance career as conductor, organist, vocal coach and teacher.


He has conducted Somerset Chamber Choir since 1990 and has been instrumental in leading the group to its current prominence as one of the most successful choirs in the region.


Graham was also conductor of the Nonsuch Singers, a London-based chamber choir whose concerts are regularly highlighted by the national press, and the Mayfield Festival Choir in East Sussex until 2012, when relocation to Jersey made these posts impractical.


Happily, the periodic rehearsal pattern of Somerset Chamber Choir means this does not affect his commitment to the choir, which remains as strong as ever.




‘It is a tribute to the versatility of this choir, and to its conductor Graham Caldbeck, that they can perform such innovative and varied programmes to such a high standard’ WELLS JOURNAL
