Ronald Corp OBE

The Cayman Arts Festival have just announced EXTRA Cayman Arts 2013 with the Cambridge Ensemble, a classical woodwind quintet from the United Kingdom and a performance of Mozart’s Requiem when Ronald Corp OBE will be conducting the Cayman National Choir and the Cayman National Orchestra plus members of the London Chorus with International Vocal Soloists.

Ronald Corp OBE (born January 4, 1951) is a composer, conductor, and Church of England priest. He is Artistic Director of the New London Orchestra and the New London Children’s Choir both of which he founded, respectively, in 1988 and 1991. He is also Musical Director of the London Chorus and the Highgate Choral Society.

Mr. Corp has worked with the BBC Singers, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Leipzig Philharmonic Orchestra.

He began writing music at a very early age. Learning the piano gave him a means of hearing and notating the pieces. He wrote throughout his teens and his undergraduate days at Oxford.

Through his musical association with choruses and singers, particularly the Highgate Choral Society and the London Chorus, Corp has written a large amount of material for choirs, both accompanied and unaccompanied. Most notably, Ronald Corp’s first major choral work And All the Trumpets Sounded was premiered in 1989 by Highgate Choral Society, who commissioned it. His cantata Laudamus (1994) was premiered at St John’s, Smith Square by the London Choral Society (now the London Chorus) to great critical acclaim.[4] In 2003 BBC Radio 3 commissioned a major work for the BBC Singers – a setting of Matthew Arnold’s Dover Beach.

There are many recordings of music by Mr. Corp that are listed in Wikipedia.

The Cambridge Ensemble concert is on Thursday March 14 at 7:30pm – Cayman Islands Baptist Church, Pedro Castle Road, Savannah.

The Mozart’s Requiem concert is on Saturday 16 March at 7:30pm, First Baptist Church, Crewe Road.
