Harvey Brough is one of the UK’s most accomplished and diverse musicians. He is unique in his ability to work with the finest professional musicians and complete beginners (both children and adults), often side by side.
Many of his compositions bring these forces together, with
remarkable results. He has been promoting Community music for many years before it became a popular movement.
Harvey sang as a chorister at Coventry Cathedral before studying at the Royal Academy of Music and Clare College, Cambridge. Since then he has worked as a freelance performer, arranger, conductor, producer and composer.
“Harvey and the Wallbangers” had great success in the 1980s throughout Europe, recording five albums, one with Simon Rattle. His compositions have been performed at the Barbican, Royal Opera House, Queen Elizabeth Hall, St John’s Smith Square, Cadogan Hall, Union Chapel, Kings Place, Turner Sims Southampton, Usher Hall Edinburgh and many other venues in the UK.
Film/TV/Theatre credits include working as Co-producer and Arranger with Jocelyn Pook on the music for “Merchant of Venice” and “Eyes Wide Shut”.
