Panos arrived early for the rehearsal which enabled us to rehearse some of the solo music before the main rehearsal began. He showed a professional attitude throughout. Getting through all the music for a church service and singing one to a part on just an hour's rehearsal requires very good sight-reading ability (this is the case in all London churches using professional singers). He was willing to put in extra time both before and after the main rehearsal and made a big effort with what was unfamiliar music. He sang (solo) the responsorial psalm very nicely. His voice is perhaps more suited to opera than to church repertoire.
Tenor Dr. Panos Ntourntoufis holds the diploma of Licentiateship of Trinity College of Music (TCM). He has also recently completed an MA in Music Therapy at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He has performed in a variety of operatic tenor roles and as chorus, with a variety of opera companies in the UK. Panos also sings regularly oratorio repertoire. Recent soloist performances include Verdi Requiem, Rossini’s and Dvorak’s Stabat Mater, Mendelssohn Elijah, Leukippos in Strauss’ Daphne. Panos also has extensive experience in choral singing, both in small ensembles and large symphonic choruses. He regularly sings as a “stiffener” for various choruses throughout the south of the country. He is very acquainted with the big choral works of the 19th and 20th century, having sung with the London Symphony chorus and BBC Symphony chorus for several years. He also regularly deputises in various churches around London, in particular Westminster Central Hall. Panos is fluent in English, French and Greek, and has sung extensively in Italian and German.
