Our Music Director is Joel Newsome-Hubbard. He joined the choir in January 2017, succeeding our previous Director of many years standing, John Sutton.
Joel graduated from the Royal College of Music in 2012. He is a singer, trumpet player and conductor. Other than acting as MD for Ember Choral, Joel regularly gives concerts as a solo trumpeter, teaches singing and trumpet in some of London’s leading school music departments and
directs a professional Baroque orchestra and choral ensemble, “Solistes de Musique Ancienne” which he founded.
Joel and the choir are supported by our very experienced accompanist, Pam Kent. Pam is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music. She has also been involved in piano teaching, giving chamber music recitals as well as acting as a professional accompanist to various musical organisations.
