Jonathan Woolgar




Jonathan Woolgar draws from a wide range of musical experience to create work that is communicative without compromise. He is particularly interested in music for voices and music for the stage.

Jonathan’s music has been performed at the Bridgewater Hall, Royal Albert Hall and Basilica San Marco, Venice by ensembles such as Manchester Camerata, Onyx Brass, Aurora Orchestra and the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, as well as broadcast several times on BBC Radio 3. In 2010 he won the BBC Proms Young Composers’ Competition. His music has been recorded for commercial release by the chapel choirs of Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge and Eton College, and he also enjoys close associations with contemporary music ensembles The Hermes Experiment and Khymerikal. Jonathan was Composer in Residence and composition teacher at Eton College for 2015-17 and Composer in Residence at Cambridge University Musical Society for 2016-17. His one-woman opera, Scenes from the End, ran to great acclaim in London and Edinburgh last year, and future projects include a commission from Cambridge University Wind Orchestra and a project with the British Embassy in Yerevan, Armenia.

Whilst currently based near London, Jonathan originally hails from Pontefract in West Yorkshire. He attended Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester from 2008-10, studying composition and conducting with Jeremy Pike and Gavin Wayte. From 2010-13 he read music at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge where he graduated with First Class Honours and studied composition with Giles Swayne, before going on to study with David Sawer at the Royal Academy of Music.
