Meet the Choirmaster!

Mr Chris Dixon is our superb Choirmaster at Jubilate Community Choir, Eastbourne. He is also our first Sing it! practitioner, and will be heading to Crowborough in September to begin working with Year 3 and 4 children. Here's a little a bit about Chris.
He was born in Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire.  He attended Millfield School, read Modern and Medieval Languages at Clare College, Cambridge where he was a choral scholar, gained a Diploma in Posgraduate Opera Performance at the Royal Academy of Music and studied at Great Britain's National Opera Studio.
He has sung the title role in Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin" for Welsh National Opera, the title role in Mozart's "Don Giovanni" conducted by Sir Colin Davis, and various solo roles for Glyndebourne, WNO, Scottish Opera and the BBC Proms.
Chris has taught a mixture of singing, class music, class languages and sport at Bede's since 2008.  

This past year he has been the Teacher of Music at Gildredge House Free School in Eastbourne.
Chris is very much enjoying taking the 'Jubilate Community Choir' rehearsals and preparing for the 'Sing it!' project.
