Christopher Delaney singing with St Albans Chamber Opera, in their 2011 production of Yeoman of the Guard


Christopher Delaney sings with St Albans Chamber Opera, and with St. Albans Rock Choir...

...I discovered I could sing at the grand age of 50, when after a few drinks, I vowed to sing at my forthcoming birthday party.


Peter Kestner, a local singing tutor and musical director of St Albans Chamber Opera (SACO), agreed to help knock my voice into shape. My first lesson  proved to be a surprise to both of us!


It transpired I have a lyric tenor voice, which after many lessons and much practise, eventually earned me a place in the SACO chorus.


I also joined St Albans Rock Choir, lead by the amazing Abbie Harris, where I felt priviliged to be given the chance to sing the solo part of 'Both Sides Now' in a performance at The Alban Arena, in July 2010.


However, I found the time commitment unworkable, and with regret, left the choir in 2013.
