Nottingham Cathedral are pleased to announce the appointment of their new Director of Music Gregory Treloar. Gregory is a tenor, conductor, and teacher, currently working as a Choral Scholar of Norwich Cathedral, who will take up the role in November to enable to the choir and music to resume in time for Advent and Christmas.
Gregory studied music at Canterbury Christ Church University where he held the Chapel Choir Conducting Scholarship for two years. During which time he received mentoring and tuition from Christopher Gower, David Flood, Patrick Russill and David Allinson. Alongside his study he was a deputy Lay Clerk for Canterbury Cathedral and graduated from CCCU with awards for highest degree, highest performance mark, and the Elizabeth Vogan Award for Singing.
He went on to study a Masters in English Church Music under Jonathan Wainwright at the University of York which he completed alongside a choral scholarship at Blackburn Cathedral. During this time, he specialised in English Catholic music of the 20th century, particularly the liturgical and musical influences of Sir Richard Runciman Terry and Dom Gregory Murray OSB. Since then he has been enjoying life in Norwich as a Choral Scholar, and the wonderful sights that the city has to offer; particularly during lockdown.
I am excited to take up this role and work to continue the fine musical tradition at Nottingham Cathedral. I look forward to meeting new people and working with the Cathedral and the Cathedral Choirs to bring music and solace to the Cathedral Community amidst the current uncertainty. I am particularly thrilled to be starting in time for Advent and Christmas, which is also such a vital and joyous time in the musical life of any Cathedral.
