Winner of the accompanist prize at the Royal Overseas League Competition, the Ludmilla Andrew Russian Song Accompanist Prize at the Royal Academy of Music, and the Maureen Lehane Vocal Awards Accompanist’s Prize, Chad is one of the rising young stars of the accompaniment world.
Whilst maintaining a full workload as a staff pianist and vocal coach at both the Royal College and Royal Academy of Music, Chad performs regularly across the UK and internationally.
After studying with Malcolm Martineau and Michael Dussek at the Royal Academy of Music, Chad was awarded the position of Lord & Lady Lurgan Junior Fellow in Accompaniment at the Royal College of Music for two consecutive years. He is a regular staff member at the Oxenfoord International Summer School for Singers and Accompanists, the Abingdon Summer School for Solo Singers, the Wessex Solo Singer’s course.
He is a founding member of the Sydney Chamber Opera Company and performed with OperaUpClose in their Olivier Award-winning production of La Bohème. As an avid orchestral musician he has performed with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Sydney Sinfonia’s Education and Discovery Programs, and performed with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at the Edinburgh International Festival. As a chamber musician, he performs as part of a horn trio called Trio SOL.
Chad is generously supported by the Thornton Foundation, and is grateful to have received further support by the Leverhulme Trust, the Reizenstein scholarship, and the Ian Potter Cultural Trust.
