Ollie Lambert is a Manchester-based musician and recent graduate of The Royal Northern College of Music. His work as Founder & Artistic Director of The Apex Singers has led the group to groundbreaking success within their first year, from headlining at The Irish International A Cappella Festival, to recording their CARA (Contemporary Acappella Recording Awards) Winning debut album, 'Hiraeth'.

His compositions and arrangements have been performed across the UK by The BBC Singers, The Hallé Corporate & Youth Choirs, The Apex Singers, Canterbury Cathedral Choir, & Ardú amongst others. Ollie also has a wealth of experience writing for chamber and orchestral ensembles, including The RNCM Film Orchestra, members of The English Chamber Orchestra, and String Infusion.

 

In 2016, Ollie first had the inspiration to create a touring project based around the discovery of rarely heard folk songs, while arranging a folk song, ‘Homeward Bound’, for Irish a cappella ensemble, Ardú. Come 2018, Ollie is in his final year studying composition at The Royal Northern College of Music and has established an 8-part a cappella ensemble, ‘The Apex Singers’ to bring this concept to life.
