Jonathan and Rachel played in the Bergersen Quartet for many years and have performed individually with renowned concert pianist William in recital. The three friends have come together to explore the rich repertoire for this wonderful combination of instruments. William Hancox has always had wide-ranging musical interests, including solo playing, chamber music, duo work and vocal coaching. He has premiered contemporary works by Roxanna Panufnik and Richard Blackford at the Cheltenham Festival and London’s South Bank, and has broadcast for the BBC and Classic FM.  He was educated at Cambridge, subsequently studying piano with the Hungarian pianist Joseph Weingarten, himself a student of Dohnányi, Bartókand Kodály. Jonathan Truscott was born in London and studied violin with Itzak Rashkovsky and Eszter Boda Katona, and spent a couple of years performing with the Tragu-Mures Philharmonic State Orchestra. He is currently leader of the Modulus String Quartet, which specialises in performing and recording contemporary music. Jonathan enjoys an eclectic career which is not entirely restricted to classical music; he has played with the Guy Barker Orchestra for Paloma Faith and George Michael. Rachel Firmager read Music at Durham University before furthering her studies on the cello at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with Myra Chahin and then in London with Jane Salmon and later with Adrian Shepherd.  As a recitalist she has performed at Fairfield Halls, St John’s Smith Square and in the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes.  An interest in contemporary music led her to play with New Music Brighton, Tacet Ensemble, Talkestra, One Voice and the Bergersen Quartet.  Admission free, suggested donation £8    ______________________________________________________________________ Friday 17th June 7:30pm University of London Chamber Choir VOCO Singapore Ladies Choir Sing Away Before going on tour to Northern Italy at the end of June, ULCC present their summer repertoire including Verdi’s Pater Noster, extracts from Byrd’s 4-part Mass and many more.

Our association with this church dates back to the choir’s formation, in 2004, when Richard Thomas was invited to put together a group of singers for a special carol service. There were 13 singers at that first event – hence the name. Over the past 12 years the choir's membership has evolved into the current group of around 33 – all of whom are experienced singers drawn from a variety of leading London choirs including the Philharmonia Chorus, BBC Symphony Chorus and London Symphony Chorus. The choir’s repertoire encompasses sacred music from the 16th to the 21st centuries and past concerts have featured masterpieces by such renowned composers as Monteverdi, de Padilla, Guerrero, Victoria, Tallis, Purcell, and Byrd through to Howells, Rachmaninov, Britten, Tavener and MacMillan.
