Josef Laming



Josef Laming is the organ scholar at New College, Oxford, where he is reading music. Growing up in Leicester, he was a chorister at Leicester Cathedral and studied the organ with Jonathan Gregory and Nigel Allcoat. In 2012 he moved to Oundle School for sixth form on a music and academic scholarship. During his time there, he performed Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 with the school orchestra at the Royal College of Music, gained a distinction in his DipABRSM on the piano, and directed Haydn's Symphony No. 6 from the harpsichord.


Joe spent his gap-year as the organ scholar at Gloucester Cathedral and was also the accompanist to Wycliffe Choral Society.

OBC has performed with many top British orchestras



We are privileged to perform with outstanding professional soloists and orchestras, which we feel greatly enhances the enjoyment and standard of our performances.


Orchestras have included the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (with whom the Choir performed Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and Delius' A Mass of Life in Symphony Hall, Birmingham, in the 1990s), the BBC Concert Orchestra and the New Queen's Hall Orchestra.


In the relatively recent past we have performed with the Philharmonia, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the Britten Sinfonia and Charivari Agréable, and have collaborated frequently with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Mozart Players and the English Chamber Orchestra.
