We were delighted to welcome the very talented Ken Burton to Frome College earlier this term. Ken’s musical activities cover a wide range of genres and roles internationally, and he regularly directs two choirs, the London Adventist Chorale, and Croydon SDA Gospel Choir, which have featured in the BBC Songs of Praise programmes.

Ken is also a guest conductor of the newly found London Youth Choir. He has several of his choral works published by Faber Music, Oxford University Press and RSCM, and is a regular adjudicator for Choir of the Year. He works extensively as a TV judge; as one of the judges for Channel 4's Gospel Singers of the Year, BBC Songs of Praise School Choir of the Year, and was one of the judges in the 8 part BAFTA nominated series The Choir: Sing While You Work, presented by Gareth Malone. 

He has appeared and worked extensively on some of the biggest programmes on British television and internationally, among them Songs Of Praise, The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent, Prom At The Palace, EastEnders and numerous others. His roles on the programmes have included performing, vocal contracting, conducting, arranging, musical directing, and production.

 

His inspirational gospel workshops in our Music department, were not only encouraging for our student singers to find more confidence, but they also helped grow our own choir and gave many students a cultural experience which they otherwise would not have had.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ken, and also the Jackdaws Music Education Trust in Great Elm, for their sponsorship and continued support of Frome College.
