Our conductor

Brian Kay divides his working life between the concert platform and the broadcasting studio. His many presentations for BBC radio have included Brian Kay's Sunday Morning, Brian Kay's Light Programme, Three for All, and Choirworks - all for Radio 3 - on Radio 2, the popular programmes Melodies for You, and Friday Night is Music Night, and for Radio 4, Comparing Notes and Music in Mind. His television appearances have included the competitions to find the Cardiff Singer of the World and the Choir of the Year, and every year since 1996, the New Year's Day Concert from Vienna. He has twice won a Sony Award as Music Presenter of the Year, including the coveted Gold Award in 1996.

Brian is also conductor of Vaughan Williams' Leith Hill Musical Festival and associate conductor of The Really Big Chorus, with which he regularly conducts massed voices in London's Royal Albert Hall, together with recent concerts in Salzburg, Prague, Venice, Seville, Cape Town, and a performance of Handel's Messiah in Beijing's Forbidden City Concert Hall.
