Details of performances Greg gave when he was a member of the W.I.A.V. Saturday Academy can be found on the ‘Saturday Academy’ page. In 2012 Greg attended an International Opera course and a review of the piano concert, the first of two concerts that where given at the end of the course, can be found on the ‘International Course’ page.  Contact details, including a Message for Greg box,  which he really enjoys receiving, can be found on the Contacts page.

The ‘Low Downs’ page will provide visitors to this site with a range of information regarding projects that are presently keeping Greg very busy indeed. As well as some biographical details the ‘Low Downs’ page has information on the tutoring that Greg is presently doing, film work that he has done, the raft of qualifications that he is currently undertaking, choirs that he has sung with, plus an invitation to appear in a rarely performed opera in Mayfair as part of the London Handel Festival.

Whether you have been following Greg since he first came to the attention of the general public or have just ‘discovered’ him a good place to start will be the ‘Been there….’ page, and its sub pages, where you will find some introductory facts and information on the range of performance activities that have been keeping him busy since 2009; including charity engagements, overseas appearances, television work and a tour he undertook in 2011 entitled ‘Night of Classics’.

Go to the ‘High Notes’ page on this site and you will find there a link to a recording of Greg singing the iconic aria ‘la Habanera’ from the opera ‘Carmen’, but very much with his own unique twist.  Also on the ‘High Notes’  page Greg reveals what some of his all time favourite pieces of classical music are.

Potential attendees had to provide contact details of a teacher/vocal coach who could vouch their suitability for the course and confirm that they met the eligibility criteria.  Greg was able to provide the name of his present coach, Linda Hutchison, to the Studio whom he was introduced to as part of his involvement with the London Handel Festival. Read more, including a report on the end of course concert, on the National Opera Studio page.

News for September 2014
At the end of September Greg commenced a music degree at the University of York. A member of the elite Russell Group of universities the University of York is one of the success stories in UK higher education. Founded in 1963 the university has powered its way to a consistently high ranking in the UK, and is one of just six post-war universities which appear in the Times Higher Education ranking of the ‘World Top 100’ universities.

Greg will continue to learn both German and Italian whilst attending York and hopes that he will be able to spend one year in Europe as part of his music degree course.

York itself is a beautiful and ancient city steeped in history. It is the home of the National Centre for Early Music, an educational charity, which aims to be the national advocate of early music in England providing early music experiences of the highest standard. Greg is enjoying his studies and living in York.

News for August 2014
This August Greg  attended a Summer School Course at the National Opera Studio in London.  

The National Opera studio was established by the Arts Council  in 1979 and since 2003 has had premises in Chapel Yard, Wandsworth. The Studio acts as a link between music colleges and the six main opera companies in the U.K.  As well as the year long full time course it also offers a range of short summer courses for students. Greg learnt one aria in advance of the summer school and received one-to-one vocal and musical coaching on this aria from the course staff; working with a stage director on the presentation of the aria.  An ensemble/chorus scene was also learnt before the course commenced which was ‘worked on’ musically and then staged.

A warm welcome to all fans’ of Greg Pritchard…….
