Conductor, Nic Fallowfield

Our Music Director, Nic Fallowfield

Nic Fallowfield is a conductor, violinist and teacher. After an intensive period of study with the renowned conductor George Hurst Nic made his debut in 1990. He is currently Musical Director of The Midland Sinfonia, a professional chamber orchestra based in Alvechurch. Over the years he has conducted youth orchestras throughout the UK - including a recent concert with the Birmingham Schools Symphony Orchestra in Symphony Hall - and is a regular visitor to many amateur orchestras. He is Musical Director of the Beauchamp Sinfonietta and has been the conductor of the Charnwood Orchestra since 1997. His conducting workshops for groups of instrumental teachers have been highly praised.

Nic’s playing is now almost exclusively as first violin of the Tedesca Quartet which he founded in 2010. The quartet plays for music societies throughout the country and performs regular series at Benslow Music, Knuston Hall, Alvechurch (where it is Resident Quartet of The Midland Sinfonia) and for the Brixworth Festival. Its coaching courses are extremely popular. Nic held the position of co-leader with both the English String Orchestra and Sinfonia Viva for many years and has been a guest leader with a number of orchestras including the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Ulster Orchestra and the Manchester Camerata. He still occasionally plays as guest leader with the Welsh Chamber Orchestra.

For nearly thirty years Nic was a highly-respected teacher at the (now Royal) Birmingham Conservatoire. He recently relinquished this post in order to give more time for other musical activities.

Nic lives and breathes music and the Charnwood Orchestra feels very privileged to be a part of his world.

More information about Nic's current projects can be found on his website.
