Jeffrey Tate becomes the new President of the Philharmonia Chorus

The Philharmonia Chorus is delighted to announce that the distinguished conductor Jeffrey Tate CBE has agreed to become the President of the Chorus.

This appointment follows a highly successful performance of Elgar's 'The Dream of Gerontius' in Hamburg's Laeiszhalle with the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jeffrey Tate on 16 September.

Jeffrey Tate succeeds the first President of the Philharmonia Chorus, Sir Charles Mackerras, who served with distinction as President for 6 years until his death in 2010.

Jeffrey Tate was himself a member of the Philharmonia Chorus in the mid-1960s when a medical student in London. Of his new appointment he says: 'I feel honoured to be invited to be the President of such a fine chorus'.
