Nicholas is currently completing his PhD in Music Research at King’s College London. His research interests include eighteenth-century British art song, poetry and the Celtic Revival. He is originally from Canada where he pursued earlier studies in musicology, history and organ performance. As a chorister he has had the opportunity to be involved in a number of large-scale performances, particularly several sacred works. Nicholas believes music-making to be a vital part of primary education and is excited to be joining Water City Music as a way of ensuring music remains a part of every child’s life.
