Joined Tamesis in September 2003 and sings bass.

I joined Tamesis as a tenor at its inception in 2003 and later went over to the dark side, transferring to the basses in 2008. I became Concert Manager for the choir several years ago and continue in this role in the vain hope that this will have some effect on the outcome of the annual re-auditioning...! Why do I love being in Tamesis? Because it stretches me musically and it is therefore hugely rewarding when it all goes well (as it usually does!). Oh – and probably because we go to the pub after rehearsals and concerts... I have been singing ever since joining All Saints' (Downshire Square, Reading) choir, where I sang for the first 14 years after I left school, and I currently sing with Goring Chamber Choir as well as Tamesis. What would life be like without singing? I can’t imagine!
