A message from the Principal

 

ben

I am delighted to announce that Benjamin Goodson is joining Somerville as our new Director of Chapel Music, in succession to David Crown who has moved on after nine very successful years at Somerville.

Ben is a gifted musician and experienced choir conductor.   He studied originally at Hertford College and quickly built up an impressive career, as –among other  posts –music director of the Bath Camerata and (his most recent appointment) chorus master at the Dorset Opera Festival.  His biography can be found here.  Ben will be spending a few days each week in college.  He has already carried out the auditions for choral scholars, and will be sending out a notice very shortly to invite people to audition for the college choir.  I know he has exciting plans, and I look forward very much to hearing the choir go on from strength to strength under his leadership.

Please join me in welcoming Benjamin Goodson to Somerville.

With all best wishes,

Alice Prochaska
