Biographies

Oliver Lallemant is Organist and Director of Music at Holy Trinity Sloane Square, and runs several choirs including Sloane Square Choral Society, Chelsea Chamber Choir and the Chelsea Arts Club Singers. A Fellow of the Royal College of Organists, and a Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music in Piano Performance, Olly also organises and directs singing holidays on the Continent.

Llandaff Cathedral was where Olly began his musical training as a young chorister. He was, and remains, the only living soul to have sung Howard Blake’s ‘We’re Walking in the Air’ in Welsh on national television. After Llandaff he moved to Wells Cathedral School, and then to King’s School, Bruton, before going on to read music at Trinity College, Cambridge (2002–5), where he was an organ scholar. While at Trinity, Olly played for radio broadcasts and high-profile concerts, and went on tour to destinations including India, Germany, Austria and the USA. 

Also a jazz pianist, Olly performs as a soloist or with his trio at weddings, soirées, cocktail receptions and Christmas parties. He plays frequently around the world, and can be heard three nights a week in the glorious setting of the Michelin-starred restaurant at the Ritz. Olly is a passionate linguist who speaks French, German, Italian and Spanish to varying degrees of fluency. 


Anna Boucher studied music at Durham University as a pianist and cellist. She then studied post-graduate vocal studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Rudolf Piernay and the Royal Northern College of Music with Barbara Robotham before embarking on a solo career of opera and recital with many UK touring companies as Bertha (Barber of Seville), Marcellina (Marriage of Figaro), Madame Podtochina (The Nose) and many contemporary operas. She sang with the Royal Opera House extra chorus, BBC singers and St. Margaret’s Church, Westminster Abbey, as well as being a frequent soloist for oratorio throughout the UK.  She teaches singing at St. Paul’s Girls’ School, works privately as a vocal coach and accompanist and is the founder of the Fulham Belles Ladies Choir and the Roehampton Ladies Choir.

Anna specialises in after-dinner entertaining with a series of satirical songs about “life” such as The Tiger Mum and a Tribute to British Airways amongst others. She is also the organiser of Music by the Bridge, a fundraising concert series for families, based at All Saints Church, Fulham. She and husband Tim have 3 teenage daughters and live in Fulham.
