Music Director and Accompanist

Langcliffe Singers could not operate without our keen team of Music director and accompanist. Allow us to introduce them to you on this page.

Darren Everhart Music Director .



After obtaining an M.A. in Music from Girton College, Cambridge, where he was director of the college chamber choir and also the college chamber orchestra, Darren was awarded a post-graduate diploma in orchestral conducting from Pisa University. In 2006, he was appointed Director of Music at Giggleswick School, a post he retained until 2012 when he moved to Italy to become Director of Music at St George’s British International School in Rome. In 2020, the family decided to move back to the UK and Darren was re-appointed to the position of Director of Music at Giggleswick School. We feel extremely fortunate that he is now also the Music Director of Langcliffe Singers.

Brian Heaton


In 1993 the choir was fortunate to gain the services of Brian Heaton as accompanist. Brian studied piano at the London College of Music and, after graduation, studied accompaniment at post-graduate level at the same institution.  He has participated in many master-classes with artists such as Roger Vignoles and has partnered a wide variety of players and singers including Nigel Kennedy, with whom he performed in the presence of Sir Colin Davis.  For many years he was the accompanist of Chiswick Choir one of West London’s leading amateur groups. He combines accompanying the Langcliffe Singers with teaching and accompanying throughout the North West, and also conducts ensembles at Skipton Music Centre.
