Arrangements for male & mixed voice choirs
In July 2020 I joined the team of arrangers and composers at Choir Community. CC is a growing resource with a mixture of licensed arrangements, original works and traditional songs ideal for community choirs. You can see my current catalogue here and there'll be more added in time, including new arrangements for mixed voices as lower voices.
Dominic is a singer, choir director, arranger and group singing advocate. Since 2009 he has worked in community centres, schools, offices & prisons encouraging a wide variety of people to use their voice for expression. After founding Chaps Choir in 2013 he has become a unofficial spokesperson and advocate for men’s community singing.
Dominic has delivered workshops and collaborated with The Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre, Spitalfield's Music, The Orpheus Centre, The Good Life Experience, Wilderness Festival, The Choir With No Name and other events & organisations in London and the UK. Artistic & educational collaborations have included artists as diverse as Shlomo, Huutajat (Finnish Shouting Men's Choir), Omar, Voices Now, Samantha Whates, Joe Stilgoe & Hattie Webb.
In 2013 he founded Chaps Choir in an attempt to get more men singing and to challenge the traditional male choir presentation. Chaps Choir has toured the UK, sung on prime time TV and collaborated with recording artists, filmographers & raised money for mental health charities. The choir's live shows, diverse repertoire, recordings and videos have been recognised around the world in offering an alternative example of the male choir presentation and encouraging men to use their voice for positive expression.
In 2015 he founded Bellow Fellows, London's first non-auditioned male community choir and in the same year began working with Beating Time, delivery singing in prisons.
An experienced ensemble singer, Dominic has toured the Europe & the US with The Spooky Men's Chorale and groove & jazz ensemble The London Vocal Project, collaborating with icons of the jazz and folk world. In 2019 he began a duo collaboration with vocal artist Ben See; ‘Ben & Dom’ have released live recordings and videos highlighting the rare sound of two unaccompanied male voices together.
He studied music at Southampton University and has undertaken training with the Associated Board of Choral Conductors and Spitalfield's Apprentice Scheme.
