Andrew graduated from the RCS in 2014 from the Master of Music (Conducting) programme with distinction and the recipient of the Peter Morris School of Music prize for excellence. He also holds a BMus (Hons) and MMus (Performance) from the conservatoire.
Since 2012 Andrew has been Director of Choirs at the RCS Junior Conservatoire where he has developed a choral programme of five choirs encompassing around three hundred students age 7-18. The choirs have seen much success in recent years included successful collaborations with the BBC SSO, RCS senior conservatoire and a recording for BBC 1 Scotland in 2017.
In addition to his work at pre HE level, he is a Kodály Musicianship lecturer for both the School of Music and School of Drama and is a conducting lecturer within the Musical Theatre department.
Andrew is the director and founder of the highly acclaimed Les SirÃ¨nes female choir, which consists of students and recent graduates of the RCS and winners of the 2012 BBC Choir of the Year competition. With this choir Andrew has made two commercial recordings, There is No Rose (Nimbus) and Sing Willow (Albion) and has broadcast frequently on BBC radio and television.
Andrew also works regularly with the National Youth Choir of Scotland, and in July 2017 directed them in Ypres for three events to commemorate the battle of Passchendaele, which were televised live on BBC 1 and BBC 2.
He is in much demand as a freelance conductor and choir director and has prepared choirs for Scottish Opera, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Aberdeen International Youth Festival and Haddo Arts Festival in addition to the RCS.
“This is a first-rate ensemble, bringing that rare blend of warmth and precision to their performances. Andrew Nunn and Les SirÃ¨nes are the perfect ambassadors for this lesser-known repertoire.” Tarik O’Regan, Composer
“What a fabulous choir, beautifully expressive and impeccably prepared.”
Howard Goodall CBE, Composer
