The Beaufort Singers
The Beaufort Singers is a chamber choir formed at Cambridge University in 2016 under the direction of Joseph Wicks. Since then, they have performed a number of stunning concerts, tackling challenging repertoire such as Tippett’s ‘Five Negro Spirituals’, Rachmaninov’s ‘Vespers’ and Sir James MacMillan’s ‘Seven Last Words From The Cross’, as well as championing new music by commissioning works from young composers. To hear a selection of audio recordings from these past performances, please visit: https://tinyurl.com/beaufortrecordings
The singers come from all over the country, with the vast majority currently completing their studies at the University of Cambridge or embarking on the early stages of their career in London. What makes this choir truly special, however, is the fact that it is a tight-knit group of friends for whom singing at an exceptionally high standard is a huge part of their life, regardless of whether or not they are intending pursuing music as a career.
Joseph Wicks is Assistant Director of Music at Truro Cathedral, a post that he took up in September 2017. As well as having founded The Beaufort Singers, he is also Musical Director of St Mary’s Singers (Truro Cathedral’s voluntary choir) and sings tenor in The Gesualdo Six. Joseph's duties at Truro include assisting the Director of Music in the training of the boy and girl choristers, conducting services and mentoring the choral and organ scholars, as well as playing the world-famous Father Willis organ for the majority of sung services.
Prior to this, Joseph was Assistant Organist of St John’s College, Cambridge, having been its Herbert Howells Organ Scholar. Whilst at St John’s, Joseph played the organ for a large proportion of the daily services sung by the world-famous Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge and also accompanied them on their busy broadcast, recording and international tour schedules to countries across the world.
