JS Bach: French Suites - numbers to be announced.

Paul Bambrough is recognised as a highly versatile musician who balances a busy performance schedule with teaching and conducting.

As a tenor, Paul has appeared at most of the country's leading concert venues and cathedrals. He has an extensive repertoire of oratorio works, has given numerous recitals and taken leading roles in many operas.

Paul studied the organ at St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol and continued his studies at Guildford Cathedral. He has given numerous recitals and has broadcast on both BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4, as well as a number of television appearances for both the BBC and ITV.

He has also been active as a pianist and has worked with some of the world's most distinguished singers including ‘The Three Tenors’, Dame Kiri te Kanawa, Sir Willard White and the late Philip Langridge. More recently he has gained a reputation as a fine harpsichordist and has given numerous performances of Bach's monumental Goldberg Variations and an acclaimed innovative project English Suites, Old and New.

Paul conducted his first opera at the age of 13 having formed an opera company for the purpose and this led to a life-long passion for directing vocal music. He has conducted all of the large scale choral works (some, multiple times!) and many operas as well as all of the Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.

Paul is currently Vice Principal at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
