About William

Singer (tenor)
Oxford
Graduate of New College, Oxford, where I was a choral scholar. Ex choral scholar of Gloucester Cathedral, and ex Westminster Abbey chorister

My classical musical education began at the age of 8 when I joined Westminster Abbey Choir School as a chorister, where I studied the piano and French horn alongside my daily obligation with the choir. I achieved Grade 8 on both instruments. I was exposed to highly pressurised musical situations, such as important television and radio broadcasts, in which I performed solos. Later, I sung with Gloucester Cathedral choir during my gap year as a tenor choral scholar, and moved on to sing with the choir of New College, Oxford- a professional and highly prestigious ensemble. Alongside my choral scholarship, I read Music at the University. I'm also interested in genres outside Classical music, and have recently set up a four-piece cross-genre band with fellow students in which I am the vocalist and keyboardist, and one of the main song-writers. We have recently recorded at Abbey Road.

Will created a very special atmosphere indeed at my birthday party, in which he sang and played the piano. He performed more upbeat songs such as Abba & Queen hits, to more laid-back jazzy piano music. He has a superb voice and is a virtuosic pianist. Would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone!

Hi Will A huge thank you to you for making the afternoon very memorable; it was very special to hear so many of my long-term favourite songs in one session. I hope that you received the compliments from my guests which I overheard as I chatted to everyone. I thought that you may be interested to know that my two absolute favourites were 'Every Little Thing' and 'You're the Best Thing' - both were fantastic. I should have made a request for you to play them again! Also I really enjoyed your own compositions and it was great that you were able to include them. I may not make a booking right now for my 70th, but perhaps you need to keep the date in mind!
