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 performed as a solo and chamber cellist across Europe and North and South America. He has recorded, variously as a cellist, singer and conductor for Nimbus, Naxos, Chandos and EMI. His work with his Latin American group Classico Latino has been warmly received by critics in Europe and Latin America, and he is currently preparing for the release of two discs of chamber music by British composer Stephen Dodgson, recorded with the Karolos Ensemble.
Alongside his work with the New Cambridge Singers, Graham is Director of St John’s Voices at St John’s College, Cambridge, and Musical Director of the Haslingfield Choir & Orchestra. He has recently been selected as one of the shortlisted candidates to succeed Stephen Cleobury as Director of CUMS Chorus, and in September 2016, he took up the post of Precentor and Director of Music at Magdalene College, Cambridge.
