Aldeburgh Voices

Our in-house choir

The choir follows in the tradition of Benjamin Britten’s festival chorus from the earliest days of the Aldeburgh Festival and the Britten–Pears Chamber Choir.

We are delighted to announce that British choral conductor Dominic Ellis-Peckham has been appointed as Music Director of Aldeburgh Voices, taking over from Ben Parry with effect from May 2020 for an initial 3-year period.

‘It will be a pleasure to welcome Dominic to Snape Maltings in this role. As an ambassador of our unique singing project Friday Afternoons he is already well known to us. It will be exciting to have Dominic as part of this remarkable organisation which is soon to merge with the Britten-Pears Foundation and in which singing will continue to play such a vital role in our activities.’
– Roger Wright

‘I’m truly honoured and humbled to be appointed Music Director of this incredible ensemble, resident at such a vibrant and illustrious centre of music and creativity. I’m really looking forward to joining this world-class team at Snape Maltings and to planning for the further development and future of Aldeburgh Voices at such an exciting time for the organisation.’
