Seann Wilkinson is an experienced music director with expertise in choral singing, directing and musical theatre. With over 15 years of experience, Seann has a wealth of performance expertise, and has been conducting and arranging for local choirs and musical theatre companies for many years. 

A graduate of Newcastle University, Seann studied Music & Performance Art, and sung for Newcastle Cathedral Choir as a Choral Lay Clerk. He then taught Classical Guitar and Singing, before studying to be a secondary school teacher.

Seann has worked with a number of operatic and musical theatre societies in the local area and has sung with and conducted many choirs, including the Sandhurst Military Wives Choir, Reading Minster Choir and Cantorum Choir. He also has played with Sunderland Symphony Orchestra, taken part in operatic workshops with Sir Thomas Allen, sung with Aled Jones as part of the Sunderland St Andrews Festival and has worked with youth groups developing performance and theatre.

He is very excited to start working with Orpheus Choir. 

Accompanist Roger Witney

Roger joined the Orpheus as our Accompanist from our Autumn season in 2021. He plays a vital part not only accompanying our rehearsals and concerts, but in leading practice sessions and preparing rehearsal recordings to assist our learning. 
He studied music at Birmingham University and went on to pursue a career in teaching. Most of his spare time, however, was spent in accompanying singers and choirs, conducting or playing in the pit for music theatre productions and providing keyboard music for cabarets or special occasions.
Roger is a regular tutor at the National Youth Music Camps, for whom he has written many musicals. He is also currently organist and choirmaster at St Mary the Virgin, Langley.
