Nicholas Wilks

Nicholas Wilks recently moved to Scotland from England where he enjoyed a number of musical directorships, including the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra, New Youth Opera, Finchley Children’s Music Group, Haringey Young Musicians, Petersfield Musical Festival, Winchester Philharmonic Choir and the Winchester Symphony Orchestra.

His musical activities range from conducting the premiere of Alec Roth’s “Earth and Sky” at the BBC Proms to developing a music and dementia project for care homes in Winchester.

Recent performances have included Handel’s Belshazzar in Paisley Abbey with Coats Choral, Borodin’s Second Symphony with Glasgow Orchestral Society, and guest conducting the Glasgow Chamber Choir.

Future concerts include two major works by Brahms: the Third Symphony with Glasgow Orchestral Society and the German Requiem with Greenock Philharmonic Choir. Nicholas is deeply committed to music education, volunteers with the Big Noise in Govanhill, and is a trustee for Buskaid UK, a charity supporting young string players in the South African township of Soweto.

Nicholas Wilks was appointed Musical Director of Edinburgh Bach Choir in 2024
