From September 2018 the singers reverted to a single Director of Music taking weekly rehearsals, workshops and concerts.
We wish to pay tribute to our two wonderful chorus masters, Patrick Barrett (January 2015- June 2017) and Rosie Howarth (September 2016-June 2018) who worked so hard with us in rehearsals each Tuesday. They brought their youth, vitality and fun in addition to their superb music and teaching skills and hold a special place in our hearts. We will following their future careers with great interest and thank them for their contribution.
Cole Bendall took on the role of Director in September 2018.
Cole came to us from Edinburgh where he was completing a PhD. He was a very well organised and focused and his rehearsals were hugely productive. He broadened the scope of music we sang but regrettably he soon moved on to a choir closer to his home. From January 2020 we will be led by Timothy Coleman whose experience is in both leading varied types of choirs and as a tenor soloist himself.
