Our President

Philip Robinson

Philip has been immersed in music all his life. He began his career at age 9 when he became a chorister at Durham Cathedral, eventually following his brothers as head chorister. He later studied piano and organ at the Royal College of Music and was awarded a First Class Degree.


Since 1980 Philip has been based in Nottingham and currently maintains a balance between teaching music at Nottingham High School and performance. He has broad musical interests extending from baroque to jazz. He particularly enjoys accompanying whether it be on the piano or harpsichord (his favourite instrument) and he also has a great interest in choral music. He has been involved with the Nottingham Harmonic Society and the Nottingham Bach Choir and of course was the Musical Director of Grantham Choral Society for five very successful seasons until April 2006 and again from 2009 till 2013. Philip is also an examiner for the ABRSM and the accompanist to the internationally famous girls' choir Cantamus in Mansfield.

Philip became President of the Society in September 2006
