Our new Musical Director

Rainbow Chorus was delighted to announce the appointment of our new Musical Director, Aneesa Chaudhry.
Her passion for music is evident in that she also works as a professional jazz singer, runs corporate and community singing workshops and teaches singing. She has led a number of choirs over the past 10 years, including youth choirs and small ensembles of 10-18 year olds. She particularly enjoys ensuring that everyone has a chance to use and enjoy developing their voice, whilst making as professional a sound as possible. She was thrilled to have been invited to take on the role of Musical Director of the Rainbow Chorus. Aneesa has her own web site where you can read more about her.

Aneesa took over from Jacob Swindells, our MD since January 2012 who has now ended a gap year where he observed rehearsals with the world renowned Berlin Philharmonic and Radio Symphony orchestras as well as the Berlin Radio Choir. Jacob has an Associate Diploma from Trinity College London and a Licentiate Diploma from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Choral singing is central to Jacob’s musical focus and he is also the director of Music at St Andrew Old Church. In October he left Brighton to begin a Music Degree as a Choral Scholar at Merton College Oxford.
