Musical Director - Andrew Marples


We are very fortunate that Andrew Marples agreed to become our Musical Director in 2013. he is a very busy, accomplished musician with many local commitments.

Andrew studied music at the University of Reading and won a post-graduate scholarship to study piano accompaniment at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

On his return to Chesterfield, Andrew pursued a varied and successful music career. He is greatly in demand as a conductor locally and has been guest conductor with Rotherham Choral Society., Present Company, Matlock Operatic Society, Sheffield City Opera and Peak Performance. He is currently also Music Dirctor of Baslow Choir, Chesterfield Gilbert and Sullivan Society and MusicWork Vocal Ensemble.

In 1990 Andrew co-founded the very successful Saturday Lunchtime concerts at Chesterfield Library and established a monthly series of concerts at Elder Yard Unitarian Chapel, where he is also organist. He teaches piano at St Anselm´s School, Bakewell and privately and is a long-suffering supporter of Chesterfield FC!


Andrew will be assisted at some rehearsals by accompanist Chris Flint who will also play for us at concerts
