Who is Darren Fellows?

Darren Fellows is one of Britain’s latest generation of composers whose output reveals a broad spectrum from musical theatre through orchestral, ensemble and solo pieces to film music.

Born in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire in 1975 Darren’s music career developed rapidly, with his works having been broadcast on radio and published by the time he was 17.

His further education took him to Cardiff and London, where he trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and studied at the Royal Academy of Music.

International publishers such as Schott & Co. Ltd, Warwick Music, and De Haske have embraced Darren’s work, some of which are listed in exam board syllabi in the UK.

Darren plays an active role in music in Wales, and has been commissioned by local authorities to compose for a wide variety of music education projects.

His music has been extensively performed in prestigious venues throughout the UK such as the Wales Millennium Centre and featured in recitals by the principal trumpeter of the Welsh National Opera. International performances are planned in the near future, including recitals in Japan by American trumpeter Tim Morrison.

Much of Darren’s time is dedicated to music education and focuses his expertise mainly in working with young people, and disadvantaged groups. He has extensive experience and skills in running workshops for people with learning difficulties or physical disabilities, and is involved in training school teachers to run music workshops through Schott’s education programme.
