Conductor – George Morton

George Morton read Music at the University of Sheffield. Having received his Bachelor's degree, he took up postgraduate studies with George Nicholson (composition/orchestration) and Kenneth Brown (trumpet).  Since graduating, George has settled in the leafy city of Sheffield and continues to enjoy its proximity to the Peak District National Park and locally-brewed beer.

As a conductor, George is in demand across the North of England.  He is founder and Artistic Director of Rep Orchestra, a professional ensemble based in Sheffield which devotes its concerts to exploring innovative and exciting projects.  He is Musical Director of the Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra, Sheffield Youth Orchestra and Nottingham University Wind Orchestra.  He has appeared as Guest Conductor with ensembles including Hallam Sinfonia, Stamford Chamber Orchestra, Sounds of the Engine House and the Swan Ensemble.
