Music Centre London
Richard is the founder and director of the Music Centre London (MCL). The aims of MCL is to bring a high quality experience of choral singing within reach of all children, regardless of their ability to pay. Three hundred young singers attend the two centres in Islington and Southwark at weekends during term-time and there are plans to open a third centre. Thousands of London children and young people have learnt to sing there over the last 25 years and Richard has prepared choirs for performances at nine BBC Proms and for concerts with many leading orchestras, ensembles and musicians.
