From an early age, Stephen Marshall has been involved with music. He began composing at 10 years old and studied at Trinity College London whilst still at school. He went on to read music at Liverpool University and composition at the Royal Academy of Music. On graduating, he began his teaching career at the King’s School, Worcester, and then Giggleswick School in Yorkshire. He was Head of Music at King Henry VIII School in Abergavenny from 1981 until 2010, and continues to teach in local schools in the area. He regularly involves his pupils in the Choir’s performances. Stephen is an accomplished keyboard player and a dynamic person who makes seemingly impossible things happen. He is passionate about the forgotten baroque repertoire as well as new compositions – the choir has given several ‘First Performances in Wales’ under his leadership. He is organist at the nearby church of Llangattock and also conducts a small a capella group, The Unicorn Singers.
