Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus (BrightonGMC) is thrilled to announce Joe Paxton’s appointment as our new Chorus Director.
Joe is no stranger to the Chorus, being previously our Assistant Musical Director. He teaches music both privately and at undergraduate level at the University of Sussex, where he is working towards the completion of his PhD. He was fortunate enough to study conducting under Guy Woolfenden OBE, formerly of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and piano under the tutelage of Dr Julian Hellaby. Joe is currently Musical Director of the Arun Choral Society and Co-Musical Director of the Brighton Early Music Festival Community Choir. In 2014 he founded Opera Alumnus, a Brighton based opera company that brings together the best early career professionals in the industry.
