A new face for Stapleford Singers

Stapleford Singers welcomed in 2008 with an additional welcome to our new conductor Adam Pounds. This new association serves to firmly cement his place within the community where he has recently made his home.

Adam has had a successful, yet challenging and varied career in music spanning more than 30 years. As a student, he studied at music college where his principal subjects were composition, classical guitar, oboe and conducting. As his chief interest was composing, he went on to receive composition lessons from Sir Lennox Berkeley as a private student. He founded the Nelson Orchestra in 1981 and enjoyed a long and fruitful association with Waltham Forest Arts Council. He has taught both adults and sixth-form students in London, Essex and Cambridge. As well as a large amount of orchestral music that is often inspired by visits to various historic sites in Britain, Adam has composed a number of chamber works that include sonatas for violin and for flute.

We are very much looking forward to benefiting from this wealth of experience and hope that Adam will find working with us enjoyable, if at times challenging!
