Philip is from Lancashire and recently completed his Masters degree at the RNCM in Manchester. He is a Buxton Festival Opera Young Artist and in 2014 was a recipient of a Help Musicians UK Sybil Tutton award. In 2014, he was a finalist in the Frederic Cox Award at the RNCM. He has performed regularly with RNCM opera, performing Baburov in the 2012 production of Shostakovich’s ‘Paradise Moscow’, Dulcamara in the 2013 production of Donizetti’s ‘L’Elisir D’Amore’ and Baron Zeta in the 2014 production of ‘The Merry Widow’. Other roles include Silvio, Paris and The Defendant, to name a few.

Philip began his musical education at the age of five, joining a local church choir. He gained stage experience as a teenager, appearing in pantomimes and musicals from the age of fourteen; he moved on to operetta relatively quickly and gained a passion for Gilbert and Sullivan.

Philip has sung in choirs all his life, and has performed with the Academy of Ancient Music, Aughton Male Voice Choir, Hallé Youth Choir, Southport Bach Choir, RNCM Chamber Choir, and Formby Choral Society. He is choral director for Ormskirk Music Society, and does education work for Operetta Theatre Company and Elysium Performance Academy in Manchester, as well as running a busy private teaching practice.
