Hats off for Ryan,

 

Congratulations to Ryan Wood who has just celebrated his first year in office as conductor and Musical Director of Bridgend Male Choir. It has been a good learning curve for the choir and Ryan; his work ethics are high and his working relationship with Stephanie, positive.

 

Over the last twelve months, his musical skills, his ability to hone in on wrong sounds and pronunciation is very much to the fore; he is much more relaxed; clear in bringing in voices and clear steady beats with hand gestures. He has a good ear and it is probably close to perfect pitch; far, far better than mine!

 

It's spot on with prompt starts, ending bang on time if sometimes a little early. The interval announcements with Chairman Gareth Davies is 10 minutes max and a succinct 10 minutes. Discipline is in Ryan's domain and he does not need the extra voice that rings around the room.

 

Working with the Music S/Committee, new and varied music is being slowly introduced into our repertoire. I am sure that any suggestions given to Music Subcommittee Chairman, Roger Price, will be looked at and fully considered.

 

Ryan has set the benchmark in rehearsal: when rehearsing with one section it should be second nature for other sections to listen, observe, look at their own music without a small minority gossiping. Ryan has set out his stall and continues to make his mark. It now falls upon the shoulders of choristers to give the support: the teaching, cajoling and a cutting sense of humour brings fun into Thursday evenings: the choir is getting there; the choir receives good concert reviews; we experience good venues; we have good worthwhile rehearsals; super attendances but we do need more consistency with chorister numbers in concerts. It is hats off to Ryan.
