Andrew Morley studied conducting and orchestration with Denis McCaldin at Lancaster University and subsequently won the Hertford Choral Scholarship to study with Peter Stark at Trinity College of Music, London. Having graduated with distinction, winning the Ricordi Conducting Prize, he is now in great demand as a conductor and teacher in London and the South-East.
Andrew began his career working with many ensembles in Lancaster, including symphony and chamber orchestras, chamber and wind ensembles, and choir and choral groups. He has a particular interest in Twentieth-Century orchestral music, and is the composer of Incidental Music to Frühlings Erwachen, Time Transfixed, and more recently Six Miniatures for chamber ensemble. In recognition of his success at TCM, Andrew was chosen as Trinity's entry for the intercollegiate Harriet Cohen Memorial Awards. In February 2004, Andrew was awarded First Prize at the Allianz-Cornhill Insurance Conducting Competition (formerly British Reserve competition), having received unanimous votes from both jury and orchestra.
Recent work includes a charity performance of Stockhausen's rarely-performed Gruppen for three orchestras; an appearance with the National Youth Orchestra Sinfonietta at the Lake District Summer Music Festival; and Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with David Owen Norris. In addition, he has worked with film and television composer Debbie Wiseman and conductor Barry Wordsworth as part of Junior Trinity's
centenary celebrations. Andrew has held teaching posts at Lancaster University, Trinity College of Music and Oxford Brookes University, and currently works with the Junior Trinity Symphony Orchestra, St Paul's Sinfonia and the Southampton University Sinfonietta.
