Graham is an award-winning cellist and conductor combining an active career directing choirs and orchestras in Cambridge with solo and chamber cello playing around the world. He studied mathematics as a Choral Scholar at St John’s College, Cambridge, and was subsequently awarded a scholarship and bursary to study cello as a postgraduate at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
Graham has recorded, variously as a cellist, singer and conductor for Nimbus, Naxos, Chandos and EMI. The first two discs of chamber music by British composer Stephen Dodgson, recorded with Graham's ensemble Karolos, were released in 2018 on the Naxos label. His work with his Latin American group Classico Latino has been warmly received by critics in Europe and Latin America, and led to his being presented with an award on Colombian national television in recognition of his contribution to Colombian Andean music. The group's fifth album, Havana Classic, was launched in the autumn of 2019 to critical acclaim and was nominated for Album of the Year in the LUKAS awards, the European equivalent of the Latin Grammys.
Alongside his work with the New Cambridge Singers, Graham is Precentor and Director of Music at Magdalene College, Cambridge as well as Director of St John’s Voices at St John’s College, Cambridge.
