Michael Etherton leaves the law to lay down the score

    Michael Etherton, 38, an Oxford law student turned musician, has become the music director of Britain's only Jewish choral society.

    After graduating, he trained as a conductor at the Rubin Academy of Music in Israel, under Mendi Rodan from Romania. Michael tells People: "It was such an exciting experience to learn under Rodan. He is a musical genius and such an inspiration to me."

    Michael is also musical director of the London Jewish Male Choir and has been guest conductor for the Czech National Symphony Orchestra. His first performance conducting the Alyth Choral Society will be Haydn's Creation.

    "It's a real thrill to be performing this large work. It is one of the best choral works in his repertoire. The piece is taken from Genesis and is appropriate for me in my fresh start with the choir."
