He has been their regular Conductor ever since apart from five years when he sang in the Tenor section when Martyn Heald conducted the Choir. Bruce has worked tirelessly over many years to improve the music in the Brentwood area, Essex Musical Association, Brentwood Choirs Festival, his own Choir the Vesper Singers  etc. He is still hoping to sing with the Choir in the Bass section when he finally retires after our last concert of the 2017 season.    His last concert - - CLICK HERE

During his time at University, Harry conducted a variety of choirs, orchestras and chamber ensembles including most notably a performance of Handel’s ‘Dixit Dominus’ with King’s  Baroque in King’s College Chapel.  He was also Musical Director of the King’s Men, a close harmony group formed of the choral scholars at King’s, with whom, alongside touring and recording, he delivered singing workshops in association with DRET (David Ross Education Trust) schools. Aside from conducting, Harry enjoys editing and arranging while remaining active as a singer in London, he is a regular deputy in many of London’s churches including the Chapel Royal St. James’ Place and has recently made his début with Tenebrae.
