Media: Hugh Waldock's Playing and Singing
Professional Interests & Hobbies in the Arts
Whatever your musical needs I can write music for every occasion and make that score available in a veriety of formats. I am a vastly experienced choral singer with over 350 amatuer and professional performances under my belt for some of the best choral conductors in the world. I am a recording artist at choral level including for the BBC and Hyperion and briefly worked as a professional soloist in Germany.
I have a history of political activism dating back to 2003. My primary concern now is Pro-Eurofederalism. I am a hard remainer, but I've also done antiwar, antifascist and student strikes against tuiton fees in both England and in Germany
.....and now for something divinely beautiful.....
The little Column About Me
It's sometimes difficult not to be seen as a Jack of All Trades and a master of none but I believe if you are educated and value education even if it is just teaching yourself you can really develop those different parts of you. I'm not just the designer of my own page or other people's pages. I am a very serious composer of Classical music and an author as well. A lot of my time is taken up with singing, playing, politcs, and the authoring of books and blogs about my life. I'm lucky to be in what my favourite German politician calls the Klub der Erbe or the club of inheritance which allows me to do pretty much as I want even if I have to first do my duty to an elderly parent. I don't earn a vast amount. I have two life threatening disabilities. They won't get better and they will eventually kill me. I was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 27 and told I had ten years to live. That was 15 years ago. I got off the drink, the weed, and the cigarettes completely. I've done 9 different jobs Chirstmas Postal Worker, Factory Worker, Retail Assistant in Operations for a Drug Store, A Telesales Assistant for a World Class Insurance Firm, An English Language Teacher with his own business teaching occupational English in the NRW in Germany, a solo countertenor singer in Germany, a translator for a world class agency and a creative artist. My aim is to succeed at creative arts. I've travelled to 26 countries in Europe and North America. Indeed I've lived permanently in Germany for 8 years and been from NYC to LA by coach. That's something I've written about in the past but is also an ongoing process. I was a British remainer, but not Anti-US as my first girlfriend was American.
Some of my all time Favourites (by no means exhaustive)....I have a very big musical heart!
