Previous operatic roles include the Defendant (Trial by Jury), Jaffett (Noye's Fludde), Clem and Alfred (The Little Sweep) and Captain Macheath (The Beggar's Opera). Upcoming engagements include Christoph in Maxwell Davies' Kommilitonen! with Welsh National Youth Opera.

Equally comfortable on the concert platform, Andrew has featured as a soloist in Stainer's Crucifixion. Andrew is a regular Lay Singer in Llandaff Cathedral, and sings in the classical cabaret group, 'All That Malarkey'.

Andrew is delighted to welcome Jordan Clarke to Fermanagh, to accompany him in this concert. Jordan is a student composer, musical director and accompanist. After attending Chetham's School of Music (Manchester) he is now studying Composition at The Royal Academy of Music (London).
