Paul Garland spent his professional life in education. Throughout his career he has been a keen choral singer and a lover of all forms of classical music.
His passionate interest in opera dates from a visit to a fog-filled Sadler’s Wells Theatre during the Great Smog of 1952 to see a performance of Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci. His great love of Wagner was turbo-charged by the historic Goodall performances of Die Meistersinger and the Ring Cycle.
He feels very lucky to be involved in bringing the superb concert performances of Saffron Opera Group to an ever growing audience.
