OUR MUSICAL TEAM
Rhian took over the Musical Director role in October 2019. She was born in Bridgend and is a graduate of the Welsh College of Music and Drama, where she won the coveted John Ireland Piano Prize.
Rhian is Head of Music at Pencoed Comprehensive School, having previously been Head of Music at Maesteg Comprehensive.
Rhian is very much at home conducting Male Voice Choirs, children’s choirs, mixed choirs and massed choirs. She is also a accomplished accompanist and is in great demand with opera singers and choirs alike.
The Choir feel that we are very lucky to have a musician of such great calibre.
Hailing from Maesteg, Alex studied at the university of Nottingham in September 2011. In July 2010 he graduated with a BA(Hons) in music – also from the University of Nottingham – achieving a 2:1.
As part of his MA programme he performed an hour-long solo recital, playing pieces of FRSM standard. Alex also trained with Simon Lepper at the Royal College of Music.
He is a professional staff accompanist at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and works with singers and instrumentalists for auditions and masterclasses all over the UK.
