The English baritone, Robert Evans, began his musical education as a chorister at Hereford Cathedral and subsequently studied singing with Henry Cummings. After a number of careers (from the Petro Chemical industry to Solanacae husbandry), Robert was drawn to the notion of making his living from singing, to which end he studied as a 'mature' student at The Royal College of Music. He distinguished himself there by being a) the oldest student and b) the cheapest Elijah since the Suez crisis.
Robert Evans made his London debut in 1987 at The Royal Festival Hall with the choir of The London Oratory. Having spent ten years in Winchester Cathedral Choir (winners of the Gramophone Record of the year in 1999). He moved to Salisbury, allowing him to concentrate on his freelance singing career, both as a soloist and as a consort singer working with The King’s Consort, The Sixteen, The Cardinalls Musick and The Gabrieli Consort.
Singing engagements have taken Robert Evans to the USA, Japan, Australia and throughout Europe. Sadly an appearance of several weeks in New York only featured his hands, plaster casts of which appeared there on a mannequin.
Although Robert Evans spends most of his time performing Classical music, he also enjoys the lighter end of the repertoire. He has sung in the West End (Starlight Express), cabaret, jingles and film sound tracks including Crimson Tide, Sleepy Hollow, King Arthur, Pirates of the Caribbean II, The Da Vinci Code and his particular favourite, Muppet Treasure Island.
