We welcome to Cork our Instrumental and Vocal Adjudicator: Mr. Bryan Husband.
Bryan studied singing and piano accompaniment at the Royal College of Music, London, and the Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. Having performed for some years in continental and UK opera houses, concert halls, and music theatre, he now divides his time between homes in London and Worcester.
Having spent some years as Head of Singing at Guildford School of Acting, he now teaches at Trinity Laban, London, runs a private teaching practice, gives workshops and masterclasses (‘belting’ to audition techniques), performs, adjudicates, examines for a music board, and also works as a ski instructor! Performances include tv and radio broadcasts, opera, oratorio and recital.
In 2005, Bryan was selected as a BIFF (British and International Federation of Festivals) Adjudicator in choral and vocal music. Adjudication has taken him all over the world, including Hong Kong, Gibraltar, and Trinidad and Tobago, and all around the UK and Ireland; recently, Bryan has adjudicated at festivals in the UK and abroad; later in 2020 will take him to Wadebridge and Wall, (Cornwall), Trinidad and Tobago, and Sligo. In 2012, Bryan was invited to become a music examiner: his most recent examining work was in Malaysia and India, and around the UK. Recent concerts include recitals in Bergen, London and Malvern. His hobbies include all theatre, gardening, skiing and walking. Bryan is delighted to be at the Cork Feis Maitiú, especially as he misses his home of seven years near Bantry.
