Bob Chilcott

Bob is a British choral conductor and composer and has been a patron of Waverley Care since 2010.

Bob is a regular conductor at our ‘Come and Sing’ fundraising events which bring together hundreds of amateur choral singers for a day workshop to rehearse under the baton of a professional conductor culminating in a performance. He has helped us raise thousands of pounds from these events.

Bob has always gone the extra mile for Waverley Care though. His music is accessible and uplifting and he has used this to help raise awareness and funds for our work.

In 2006 he wrote a piece of music for Waverley Care called ‘You are my God’ and then in 2008 dedicated a jazz arrangement of “Th House of the Rising Sun” to us. He also was a key figure in the Carol Writing Competition arranged for our 21st Birthday. He was one of the judges for the competition and arranged for the winning pieces to be published in Carol for Choirs, published by Oxford University Press.
