Exeter Philharmonic Choir, which has just celebrated its 170th season, is
delighted to announce that Howard Ionascu will become its new
Director of Music in September, marking a new era in the choir’s long history.
Howard Ionascu has been with the Royal Academy of Music for the last four years, where he is Director of the Junior Academy. He will be making regular trips from London to work with Exeter Philharmonic Choir and brings extensive experience of conducting concerts with full orchestras and large choirs.
Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles was the first major work commissioned by the award-winning professional vocal ensemble, Tenebrae, in 2005 and having received high acclaim (“an evocative odyssey” – The Times) returns this year for an extensive UK tour alongside choral favourites such as Stanford's 'The Blue Bird' and works by EElgar and Tavener.
To accompany its revival, Tenebrae has commissioned a unique new choral work by Owain Park, Footsteps, which allows Tenebrae to perform alongside Antiphon and marks Tenebrae’s fifteenth-anniversary season.
