Director of Music

We are delighted to welcome Andrew McTaggart as our new Director of Music.  Andrew is a professional singer with Scottish Opera, lectures in voice at the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow, is director of the National Youth Choir of Scotland, guest conductor with the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and director of Ayr Choral Union.

Formed in 1997 as a small choir with a repertoire ranging from Plainsong to Poulenc, Monteverdi to MacMillan, the Wordsworth Singers have won critical acclaim for inspiring performances of largely unaccompanied works.

The choir’s singing members come from all over Cumbria and from the south of Scotland, coming together several times a year to perform concerts throughout Cumbria and beyond, following a two week rehearsal period. They have sung at the Lake District Summer Music Festival and on the Edinburgh Fringe. They have also been invited to perform at weddings, dinners and other events, singing music from the 14th to 21st centuries. They have given first performances and recorded four CDs.

In 2015 The Wordsworth Singers were honoured to receive the title “Choir of the Year” at the first Cumbria Life Culture Awards.
