Michael Segaud our Musical Director

M Segaud We are delighed to welcome our new Musical Director Michael Segaud.  Michael was born in Bridge of Earn and now lives in Perth, having very recently re-located from England.  Michael has a wealth of musical experience from professional singing, playing the viola and conducting a number of choral societies.  He was appointed musical director for Marple Choral Society in 2013 and also as the guest conductor for Manchester Philarmonic Choir, the highlight of which was a musical variety concert with music ranging from Handel Anthems through to the Bohemian Rhapsody.  Michael has also performed with the Halle Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and Raymond Gubbay's Manchester Orchestra, the latter of which involved a performance with two choirs, conducted by Sir Karl Jenkins.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have Michael leading us.  He does so with great skill and humour and encourages us to do the very best we can.
