Robert Green has held many posts in his musical career. Whilst still a schoolboy he won scholarships to the Birmingham Conservatoire in organ and singing and was fortunate in having his organ lessons from Dr George Thalben Ball on the celebrated Willis organ in Birmingham Town Hall.
In addition to being Director of Music in schools and lecturing in Colleges of Further Education, he was the first conductor of the then newly-formed Tamworth Choral Society.
He has performed as a bass soloist in opera and oratorio and been Assistant Organist at Lichfield and Hereford Cathedrals; at the latter his duties included being accompanist to the Three Choirs Festival. He has appeared on radio and television and made recordings as singer, player and conductor.
He has recently retired from the posts of Senior Examiner for the University of Oxford Delegacy of Local Examinations in A level Music and Headship of the Music Department at Ripon Grammar School, where he was also Senior Boarding Master, Lay Clerk at Ripon Cathedral and accompanist and Deputy Conductor of Ripon Choral Society,
He and his wife now live in North West Herefordshire, where he restores and builds harpsichords and continues to conduct choral workshops and courses and to give recitals in cathedrals, abbeys and churches throughout this country and on the continent.
The recital will be followed by our usual charity Lunch.
