Richard Jenkinson is well-known and respected for excellent, critically acclaimed concerts. He was a scholarship student at the Royal College of Music in London, where he won many prizes and awards for his work, and where Sir David Willcocks was a huge influence and guide. He works regularly with many choral societies, chamber choirs and church choirs in and around London/Southern England, and has appeared at most of the major venues.
Richard was appointed Conductor of The London Orpheus Choir in 2011 He is also continuing to develop his own chamber choir Meridian Voices; they have recently enjoyed a very successful weekend deputising for the professional choir in Hereford Cathedral.
Richard’s other projects include helping to develop great choral singing in local secondary schools, running a “Vocal Academy,” and leading musical exchanges between his English choirs and their twin town counterparts abroad. He also has a flourishing parallel career as organist and church musician.
Away from music, Richard continues to enjoy sport (mostly viewed from the safety of a comfy sofa) plus good wine and local beer
