Susan Moore has taken part in numerous shows during the past ten years and directed our ‘life-affirming’ Magic Flute.

Joe Morgan first sang for us in Trial by Jury and since has appeared in Quartets and Magic Flute.

Stephen John Svanholm delighted all with his ‘rich, luscious voice that moves easily and gloriously at speed’ in “Quartets”.
