It was announced last month that Musical Director of The Beaufort Singers and Artistic Director of the Boxgrove Choral Festival, Joseph Wicks, will be leaving Truro Cathedral this summer.
“I will be deeply sad to leave Truro. It is an extraordinary place, a true musical hub in beautiful Cornwall. The cathedral’s Father Willis organ will be particularly hard to leave behind, as will my work with the cathedral choir – boy and girl choristers, choral scholars and lay vicars. In Christopher Gray, the cathedral’s director of music, I know that I have a great friend as well as a huge inspiration to me. It has been such a joy to work with him to maintain and enrich the amazing choral tradition of the cathedral. I extend my sincere, heartfelt thanks to all my colleagues and best wishes for the future.”
Joseph will be moving closer to London to focus on his freelance career as a singer, organist and conductor. We are extremely pleased that he will be around much, much more of the time and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us with Joseph at the helm!
