One of the most promising rising stars of the tenor scene, Andy has a natural gift for conveying even the most boring piece of information in a genuinely funny way. Born in the small Northern Irish town of Enniskillen, he went on to study at Chetham’s School of Music, where he began his training with mezzo-soprano Helen Francis. Now a vocal student at the esteemed Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, where he studies with Adrian Thompson, Andy was delighted to have been chosen to represent the college in the Kathleen Ferrier Bursary Award, October 2015.
Andrew’s 2017 operatic engagements include Tamino/The Magic Flute with Great Witley Opera, Nemorino/L’elisir D’amore with Simply Opera, and Basilio/Curzio in Clonter Opera’s “Le Nozze di Figaro”. Equally comfortable on the concert platform, Andrew has featured as a soloist in Mozart Requiem, Stainer’s Crucifixion and Bach St. Matthew Passion. Andrew is a regular Lay Singer in Llandaff Cathedral, and sings in the classical cabaret group, “All That Malarkey”.
