MUSICAL DIRECTOR
Derek Walters ARCM, FTCL, LTCL, LGSM, FLCM
Derek has had a wide musical experience as a Conductor and Composer, having in the past conducted choral societies in South Lancashire and London. He studied with Sir Adrian Boult and holds diplomas from four main colleges of music in London, being awarded a Silver Medal by the Guildhall School of Music. However, he is more widely known as an authority on Chinese Traditional Culture.  In this latter capacity he is regularly invited to speak at international conferences from Brazil to China and Russia and is the author of several successful books translated into more than a dozen languages. When he retired to Morecambe, he felt the need to become involved once again with his first love, which is music.  He led his first rehearsal of the Choir on 1st September 2009.
