Director of the Junior Choir and Director of the Community Choir
Aidan Coburn

Aidan first sang with the senior choir at HPC when he was just sixteen, and has been involved with music making at the church in various ways ever since. Between then and now, Aidan read undergraduate music at Gonville and Caius College Cambridge and postgraduate vocal studies at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Aidan taught academic music at The London Oratory School where, in addition to teaching the choristers, he also directed the internationally-renowned Schola Cantorum, and ran the Singup Chorister Outreach Programme.

As a singer, Aidan has worked with, amongst others, Glyndeboune and Wexford Festival Operas and at the Royal Opera House. In addition to singing, Aidan has performed widely as a conductor, having founded Shadwell Opera (with whom he won the International Herald Angel Award at Edinburgh Fringe Festival), and now conducting the Colla Voce Singers. At Hampstead, Aidan continues to sing in the senior choir as well as directing the Junior Choir and the Community Choir.
