I probably learnt my
conducting skills from Richard who conducted
the Cambridge University
Gilbert and Sullivan Society.
I sang in the chorus for three seasons 1967-1970.
Years later I
watched him conduct a Prom concert and
immediately recognised his style!
It was one of the
greatest compliments ever paid to me when several members of my
orchestra gathered round me during an interval mid-performance to
tell me that they found my conducting to be most professional.
