Greg Hallam is an esteemed choral director, singer and teacher. Greg teaches singing and choral conducting to young people aged 8-23 at Wellington College, Christchurch Cathedral School, Worcester College, Oxford and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, in addition to directing three adult choirs.
Greg’s conducting and rehearsing style is drawn from his experiences as a singer. As a baritone, he has sung with a number of groups including London Voices, Philharmonia Voices, Voces8 and Dieci Voices. He has worked with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, London Youth Choir and founded the Ulster Youth Junior Choir in 2017.
A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music and Royal College of Music, Greg was awarded an ARAM (Associate of the Royal Academy of Music) for his significant contribution to the music profession in 2019.
Most recently, during the Covid-19 pandemic, Greg became more creative with his working practices and transitioned two of his choirs onto Zoom rehearsals. These rehearsals culminated in a number of virtual choir performances… although nothing can compare with real-life rehearsals and performances!
Greg has worked with Mahogany Opera over the past five years and has loved collaborating with such wonderfully talented and creative people. He has helped share several ‘Snappy Operas’ to young people in Cornwall, Essex and Durham and is always inspired by both the enthusiasm of the participants and the creativity of the organisation.
