He is the Founder and Music Director of the Brixton Chamber Orchestra, Lunchbreak Opera Company and Scherzo Ensemble -- a 10 voice consort of young professional soloists in training. He is also the Choirmaster at The Centre for Young Musicians and St Thomas of Canterbury Church, Fulham. On being asked to act as guest conductor, Matthew commented: “I’m delighted to be given the opportunity of working with such a capable concert band with a great deal of musical ambition. I’ve always been a fan of the repertoire and hope to learn much more.” Matthew will be conducting the Band in concert on Saturday 9th March in aid of the Orpington Branch of the RNLI at Orpington Methodist Church.
