Having studied at the Royal College of Music in London, where he won a composition scholarship, John Fox made his first BBC Broadcast in the late 1950's and has featured on a great deal of broadcasting since then, including arranging and conducting for the BBC Radio Orchestra, with the accent on strings. Millions of listeners in Britain, Europe, the United States, Japan and particularly Germany have found pleasure and exhilaration in his broadcasts from the BBC, United States Networks, his record albums, compact discs and live performances.


He has written scores for films and television, composing in many different styles, demonstrating his extraordinary skill, using massive sounds right down to small forces.

also enjoys writing for voices -"The John Fox Singers" - hence the reason in some of his lush arrangements voices are used to add colour to the orchestral texture. He has a great affection towards the French Impressionist School --and also has an intense respect for Gershwin. John's compositions and arrangements have a distinct string sound, the ability to "pull at the heart strings" is truly remarkable.

recent activities have been to conduct concerts in Europe (using his own compositions and arrangements) featuring his lovely wife Joy Devon as vocalist. One of the Cologne Concerts in particular was most memorable for both of them -they were given a standing ovation from a packed concert hall. More recently John's "Earth and Space" suite for a large orchestra and choir was performed successfully at Huntington in England.

few months ago, John's double C.D. "Twilight Time" was launched in the U.S.A. and U.K. -again with the accent on lush strings bringing beautiful easy listening sounds to the listener.

Fox is a good pianist and he likes to take part on his many C.D.'s, especially accompanying vocalist Joy Devon (husband and wife team).

is much involved in writing for Library Music, where his versatile compositions reach out to a worldwide market for T.V., Films. Radio and commercials etc.

can see that John's life is full of variety and lots of challenges along the way. He feels lucky to be able to conduct his own arrangements and compositions which go out to many parts of the world, bringing people closer together through the magic of his music.

    5th grade teacher: In fifth grade, my teacher loathed me. She would do anything to make me cry and sent me to the principle’s office any chance she got. Don’t believe me? I’m left handed. So still, to this day, I get my hands confused. On this particular day, we were doing the Pledge of Allegiance and I had put my left hand to my chest (it’s supposed to be your right hand over your heart). She got mad at me, telling me that I wasn’t being ‘patriotic’ and sent me to the principal’s office. The principal and I were quite aquatinted at this point and so I told her why I was sent back to her office again, and she laughed. And laughed. I didn’t find it funny at all, I mean all the kids in my school thought I was a delinquent so they didn’t want to be my friend. My principal wrote on the back of my hands, L and R. What I didn’t realize was that she wrote L on my right hand and R on my left hand. She did the same to hers. Then, she walked me back to the classroom, and made our whole class redo the Pledge with our ‘right’ hand, with me leading the class, and it was one of the happiest moments of my elementary experience.
