Richard Neville-Towle

Richard Neville-Towle was educated at Durham University and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, preceded by spells as organ scholar at Ely Cathedral and the Royal School of Church Music. He founded Ludus Baroque to fulfil his passion for the performance of Baroque masterpieces on period instruments, and continues to relish the pleasure in playing this wonderful music with performers of the quality and sense of fun that Ludus is fortunate to attract. In addition to directing Ludus Baroque projects, Richard is Director of Music at Canongate Kirk and conductor of Edinburgh’s Really Terrible Orchestra, a celebrated community orchestra which encourages participation regardless of musical ability.
