Bath Choral Society are pleased to have George Bevan as accompanist. George was a chorister at St. Mary’s Warwick, where he also had his first organ lessons with Paul Trepte. From there he has won scholarships to Wellington College, and then to the Royal College of Music where he continued his organ studies with Richard Popplewell and Timothy Bond, and piano with Yu Chun Yee. As a student at the RCM George won every major organ prize and gave many recitals, including at St. Mary’s Warwick, Newcastle Cathederal and the Temple Church in London. During this time he also held the post of organist at St. James’s Muswell Hill, and it was there that he discovered a passion for directing choral music and for teaching which has remained with him ever since. George held teaching posts at Channing School in Highgate, Pangbourne College and Rugby School before being appointed Director of Music at Wycombe Abbey School in 2003. Since 2009 he has been Director of Music at Monkton Combe School, and in January 2022 he takes up the post of Head of Academic Music at Downside School, Stratton-on-the-Fosse.
