Northallerton Male Voice Choir is privileged to have Andrea Rhodes as our Musical Director. Andrea has been our Musical Director since 2014 and she is heavily involved with up-dating the Choir's approach to our performances to secure a long-term future for the Choir; whilst so many other Male Voice Choirs struggle to survive.
Andrea has always had a keen interest in music ever since she started playing the piano at the age of 5. She joined a church choir as a teenager and played lead roles in musicals at school, as well as playing violin in various orchestras.
Andrea gained a Degree in Creative Arts at Newcastle Polytechnic, where her main subject music. She followed this with a PGCE (teaching) qualification from Bretton Hall College in West Yorkshire, before beginning to teach music at secondary schools in Doncaster and Wakefield.
For many years during the 1990s Andrea was a member of Huddersfield Choral Society, but when she moved to Northallerton in 1997, she joined the North Yorkshire Chorus. Andrea is now a member of Northallerton Musical Theatre Company and enjoys singing and acting on stage. However, she has also taken the role of their Musical Director, leading a number of Christmas shows and directing their Spring Show ‘Songs from Stage and Screen’ in 2013.
After moving to North Yorkshire, Andrea supported Northallerton Male Voice Choir by performing as their Guest Soloist at a number of concerts around the north-east, cementing a long-term relationship with the Choir.
Northallerton Male Voice Choir is indebted to Andrea for her musical ability, enthusiasm, vision, patience and good nature that makes rehearsal time productive but great fun. Her hard work enables us to perform at the peak of our ability during our concerts that assist very many Charities and Organisations to earn much needed funds.
Thank you Andrea.
