While clearing up a while ago I came across these two photographs taken many years apart!

I can still remember going to Mr Philips (the photographer) who was a neighbour - (better still! I remember his daughter, Judith) - he had set up a studio in his back living room.


Here's how we turned out! (A recent photo taken at my niece's wedding)


This 'Fancy Dress' one was taken during the rehearsals for a semi-staged production of Eugene Onegin in January 1996 at the Arts Centre in the University of Warwick. click for full size image

Choral

I've been singing with University of Warwick Chorus , since 1990
With them I've taken part in Requiems by Verdi, Berlioz, Mozart & Faure, Concert performances of Eugene Onegin & Carmen, Tippet's 'A Child of Our Time', Beethoven's Choral Symphony (9th), Mahler's 8th (Symphony of a Thousand), Walton's 'Belshazars Feast', Bernstein's 'Chichester Psalms', plus many other pieces by Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven etc.

With a Community Theatre Group run by the late Keith Taylor I was introduced to Sondheim and apperaed in his 'A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum' and 'The Frogs'. Keith wrote a musical version of Bunyan's "A Pilgrims Progress" in which I played 6 roles including a 'gate'! After being diagnoseed with Kidney Cancer, Keith set about persuading Cameron Mackintosh to allow the only (to date) amateur production of Les Misérables which had three performances in September 2002 in aid of Kidney Cancer UK.

In the 6 years to 2013 I was involved with Coventry Savoy Opera Society taking minor roles in "The Gondoliers", "HMS Pinafore", "Patience", Pish Tush in "The Mikado" completeing my time with them as Samuel in "The Pirates of Penzance"

I now also sing with Spires Music and Firebird Singers.
