  Charles Humphries, Music Director

   Charles Humphries was born in England and has studied music since the age of 7 where he was a      chorister at Salisbury Cathedral. He continued his education at one of the top public schools in the country       and then won a scholarship to study voice at the Royal Academy of Music in London. There he received the Associate of the Royal Academy of Music (ARAM) for services to music. Along with his vocal studies he mastered the piano, flute and organ as secondary instruments. From 1993 he worked in the freelance world and became known as one of the foremost counter tenors of his generation. Working in opera houses, concert halls and recital venues he has collaborated and worked with some of the world’s leading conductors and orchestras. He has recorded for many main stream labels with a discography reaching around 50 recordings.

In 2009 he moved to the USA where he continued his freelancing work and has lived in diverse areas such as Washington DC, New York and now Gloucester, Va. In New York he was a member of the men and boys choir at St Thomas church, 5th avenue. His move to the Virginia region was primarily due to an opening at the living museum at Colonial Williamsburg and during that time he created a thriving private voice studio within the region as well as continuing his solo vocal work and has  continued his instrumental skills. Before being appointed as Director of Music at Ware he was Interim director of music at St Andrews, Episcopal church, Oregon Hill, Richmond.
