Having joined the Wessex Concert Orchestra as a cellist at its re-launch, I also went on to become the Orchestra Manager and Chairman for a good number of years.  I was also the Chairman of the Swindon Recital Series until 2014.

I’m a lyric tenor based in Wiltshire, UK. I sing a wide variety of genres including opera, music theatre, choral music, lieder, and oratorio. (I also play the cello!)

 

I sing regularly with the internationally-acclaimed and award-winning Wessex Male Choir both as a soloist and top-tenor as well as with the Choir's chamber group, the Wessex Camerata

 

I was the Choir's Chairman from July 2014 - July 2017 and remain one of the Choir's trustees.
