Welcome to the website of James Bingham!
James holds a first class BMus degree in Music from the University of Sheffield and is currently studying an MA in Choral Conducting at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama under the tuition of Neil Ferris and Sarah Tenant-Flowers. He is Musical Director of the Cavatina Singers in Penarth and Team Captain for Only Boys Aloud in Cardiff.
James’s unorthodox musical training began as a rock singer, fronting various bands in various venues across Manchester. It wasn’t until his late teens that James gained an interest in classical music.
James has a particular interest in promoting the inclusion and accessibility of classical music. Having come to classical music from an unusual angle, James has identified with the inaccurate assumptions many people have about the genre. James believes that this music has just as much relevancy to today’s society as any other genre of music and hopes to devote his career to breaking down the divisions between classical music and popular music genres.
