'...a truly inspiring conductor with an incredible magnetism and stage-presence.' - OPUS
Charlotte Corderoy is a London-based conductor currently studying with Sian Edwards at the Royal Academy of Music.
In 2022 she was appointed Assistant Conductor at Opera Holland Park for British Youth Opera’s production of Vaughan-Williams’ Sir John in Love. Other projects include assisting Jessica Cottis at the Aldeburgh Festival (Snape Matings) working alongside the Britten Pears Contemporary Ensemble.
She is also one of seven women invited by the Royal Philharmonic Society to front a new scheme for female conductors in association with the Royal Northern Sinfonia at Sage Gateshead.
She began her musical journey as a pianist and organist. During her undergraduate degree at the University of Oxford, she held an Organ Scholarship at Hertford College, as well as Principal Conductorship of the Oxford University Philharmonia and the Oxford Contemporary Opera Society.
Charlotte was the first student in Oxford's history to hold the conductorship of the Philharmonia alongside the Conducting Scholarship of Schola Cantorum, Oxford's premier chamber choir. During this period she worked with world-class soloists such as James Gilchrist.
She is interested in showcasing contemporary music to new audiences and was MD for the UK premiere of British composer Gavin Bryars' chamber opera Marilyn Forever.
More recently, her time at the Royal Academy of Music has seen her receive coaching from conductors including Edward Gardner OBE (LPO), Sir Mark Elder (Hallé), John Wilson (John Wilson Orchestra) and Daniel Capps (NYC Ballet).
Charlotte's passions extend to Musical Theatre and Music Education. As someone who enjoys working with young people, she has held positions at Sherborne School and Charterhouse School in Surrey. While at Charterhouse she was Musical Director for a production of Schönberg's Les Misérables, and will be pianist for an upcoming production of Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along at the Royal Academy of Music, this summer.
