Malcolm Singer, composer and conductor, teaches Composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and was Director of Music at the Yehudi Menuhin School from 1998-2017.


He read music at Magdalene College, Cambridge before studying in Europe with both Nadia Boulanger and Gyorgy Ligeti. He was later awarded a Harkness Fellowship, spending two years at Stanford University, California. Malcolm’s compositions include Making Music, a commission by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Kaddish for 24 solo voices written for the BBC Singers. A Hopeful Place was conducted by Lord Menuhin in the Royal Albert Hall, London and his opera The Jailer’s Tale was premiered by the Finchley Children’s Music Group in 2010.


Recent pieces include Chagall’s Violin for 7 violins, commissioned to commemorate Lord Menuhin’s centenary. In 2018, he was a featured composer at the Shipley Festival with a performance of The Margrave’s Dream and the premiere of the Shipley Psalms for choir with solo violin. A new version of his children’s cantata, Dragons, was performed at the conclusion of Horsham’s 2019 Year of Culture in Sussex, and a new orchestration Clarion Call – now for Wind Orchestra – will be performed at Sherborne’s 2020 ConcertFest.
