Brighton Chamber Choir

The Music Director

Jane Money
Born in Portsmouth, Jane studied singing from an early age and received some of her most influential choral training in the Portsmouth Festival Choir, then under the direction of John Eliot Gardiner. A Choral Scholarship took her to Royal Holloway College, University of London, from where she graduated with a BMus Honours degree, and she was then appointed Director of Music at the Marist Convent School, London. Further awards enabled her to continue her vocal studies as a post-graduate at the Royal Northern College of Music and subsequently with Sylvia Jacobs.

Jane has worked with many of the world's leading conductors, including Simon Rattle, Bernard Haitink and Andrew Davis. She has sung regularly for Glyndebourne Festival and Touring Operas, with performances including a well-reviewed Madame Larina in Graham Vick's highly acclaimed production of Eugene Onegin. She has also sung with Kentish Opera, Opera South East and Dublin Grand Opera, and toured with the Earls Court arena production of Carmen to Japan, Switzerland and Germany.

She is much in demand on the concert platform, with solo engagements taking her over much of Britain and Europe. Her extensive oratorio repertoire encompasses Handel, Verdi and Tippett, and she recently made her American debut in a concert of Vivaldi and Bach. Jane has accepted several invitations to sing at the Queen's private chapel in Windsor Great Park, and she took part in a special Morning Service there in the presence of the Royal Family to celebrate the late Queen Mother's 100th birthday.

Recordings include the mezzo-soprano role in the premiere performance of Michael Finnissy's This Church, directed by the composer himself.

Jane now divides her "musical" time between singing, examining for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, teaching and choral conducting. Contact Jane here.
