We’re delighted to welcome Tim Rhys-Evans, MBE to the College this term as our new Director of Music.
Tim’s already well known to the College as a graduate, former vocal studies tutor and Fellow, and will be joining the College in his new role in April.
He’s also the founder and Artistic Director of The Aloud Charity, which runs Only Boys Aloud and Only Kids Aloud, and the creator of Only Men Aloud.
As a renowned musician Tim’s work has taken him all over the world as a choral conductor, vocal specialist, arranger, composer, adjudicator and presenter on TV and radio.
“I have a long association with the College,” said Tim, “and I’m absolutely delighted to be the new Director of Music.
Witnessing the college’s transformation in recent years has been a joy and I’m excited to be playing a part in the next phase of the College’s development.
Music and the performing arts is so central to us as a nation and I will be committed to ensuring that excellence is at the core of everything we do, enabling us to shine even more brightly on the world stage.”
As well as working with the Aloud choirs, and his mixed choir Serendipity, Tim’s conducted many other choirs, including the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, and is very proud to be the current conductor of the National Youth Choir of Wales.
With an extensive background in opera, he’s worked as the Music Director of both Welsh National Youth Opera and Youth Opera Northern Ireland, as well as the Associate Chorus Master for Welsh National Opera.
In 2013 Tim was awarded an MBE for services to music and for charitable services.
