Our Musical Director is
Simon Pusey, MA, ARCO who
joined us in September 2009.

Simon conducts the
Hemel Hempstead Singers and is
the accompanist at
Potters Bar Choral Society.
He is also active as a singer,
piano accompanist and teacher.

With an involvement in choral music from his early years at the choir school of All Saints Margaret Street, London W1, Simon began to conduct his own ensembles whilst still in the sixth form at Chingford Senior High School. He subsequently became a Choral Exhibitioner at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he read Music.

Since graduation Simon has been constantly involved in musical activities as Organist, Choirmaster and Director of Music and sometimes singer with a wide variety of professional and amateur ensembles.

Simon has had previous connections with The Crofton Singers. The choir’s first conductor was his godfather, the composer Raymond Warren. Simon sang in the choir himself for a short while before leaving for University. Not only that, his father Andrew Pusey, was its conductor for a while in the 1970s.
