For twenty four years, I was the bass player for the English Concert.  

In 2003 I volunteered myself to manage St. James' Baroque and ended up running it ever since.                      Be careful what you volunteer for!

I still play for St James' Baroque - violone and violone grosso, sometimes a large bass violin.
