Musical Director / Producer
Described by Donald MacLeod as “extraordinarily resourceful”, Frederick Waxman has recently graduated with a degree in Experimental Psychology from University College, Oxford, where he was an Academic Exhibitioner (Proxime Accessit to the Susan Mary Rouse Memorial Prize), Choral Scholar, and Instrumental Scholar. He currently studies for an MMus at GSMD.
A multi-instrumentalist and singer, he frequently accompanies singers in concert and in competition, as well as playing the oboe as a freelancer. He is a keen interpreter of early music, playing the harpsichord and directing music for the New Renaissance Collective. Frederick is a member of the Arnold Schoenberg Choir in Vienna. He studies musical direction with Howard Williams and Tim Redmond. Frederick recently directed music of his own composition for the play Timetravellers by Anastasiia Kosodii at the Teatr Lesi, Lviv.
During his time at Oxford, he recited Walton's Façade with Hilary Davan Wetton. With the Martlet Ensemble, an initiative by Director of Music Giles Underwood for giving students performance opportunities with professionals, he performed on the oboe a concert of Bach Cantatas (BWV 78, 82, 156, 159) and another of Finzi's Interlude, and with the Martlet Voices, a set of Wolf part-songs.
