Jamie W. Hall

Born "up north", in the heart of the Nottinghamshire coalfield, Jamie W. Hall's singing career began when a rather frank appraisal of his keyboard skills lead him to the conclusion that his career as a concert pianist was going nowhere! Since when he has studied voice, beginning his professional life with the cathedral choirs of Chester and Winchester where he developed a passion for liturgical choral music.

Now a member of the world-famous BBC Singers, he has performed extensively in some of the most iconic buildings in the UK and beyond and has broadcast on BBC radio and television, most notably singing solos in Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle under David Hill, Handel's Dixit Dominus with James O'Donnell and St James's Baroque and Zeisl's Requiem Ebraico with Johannes Wildner and the BBC Concert Orchestra.

Jamie is often in demand as a soloist, performing oratorio with choirs and orchestras across the UK. His recent engagements include Verdi's Requiem at Ely Cathedral with Stephen Cleobury and CUMS, Handel's The Messiah at Romsey Abbey with Charavari Agreable Simfonie, Bach's St John Passion at Guildford Cathedral with Guildford Cathedral Choir, Tippet's A Child of Our Time at Chichester Cathedral (UC Orchestra and chorus) and Haydn's Creation at Winchester Cathedral. (Winchester and County Music Festival)

He has also performed Handel's The Messiah and Bach's Mass in B minor with The 18th Century Concert Orchestra, Handel's The Passion of Christ and The Messiah with The English Haydn Orchestra, Mozart's Requiem with The London Concertante, Bach's Magnificat with Southern Sinfonia, Handel's Isreal in Egypt with The Chameleon Arts Orchestra, Brahms' German Requiem at the Church Colleges Choir Festival, Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle with Nicholas Wilks/Malcolm Archer/Winchester Music Club and Beethoven's Mass in C and Mendelssohn's Elijah at the Yehudi Menuhin School.

Also a choral conductor, Jamie's 2013 season will be spent working with Romsey Choral Society giving joint concerts with the BBC Singers in London and acting as chorus master for their forthcoming concert with Howard Goodall where Jamie will also be a soloist.
