John Trent Wallace

Our Musical Director


John delights in encouraging people to experience the fun of singing with others, whether they are experienced or new to choral singing. He has developed a reputation for creating dynamic choral arrangements of modern classic songs, which are regularly performed across the UK and America.

Drawing on a career that saw him first perform on the professional stage as a soloist at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden alongside singers such as Kiri Te Kanawa, he has subsequently been involved with many classical, rock and musical theatre projects, working in venues ranging from The Royal Albert Hall to The Theatre Royal, Waterford.

John is a published composer of musical theatre and is currently composing the music for a new Musical, Conjuring Women, with Ariel Williams and Las Vegas magician Ariann Black.

As a musical director and sound engineer, he has been involved with many shows, concerts and other performances, from Bugsy Malone, through Les Miserables to We Will Rock You, with projects including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and West End soloists. He was a resident Musical Director  for Brentwood Theatre for eight years, during which time he composed and created orchestrations for their Christmas shows.
