Martin began piano lessons at the age of seven and went on to study at the Royal College of Music graduating in 1988. His interest in light music grew from hearing the BBC 60th anniversary album On the Air. Having been Musical Director for many amateur productions in South East London ranging from Guys and Dolls to The Magic Flute, he is in regular demand as an accompanist, and has also created arrangements for the Aspidistra Drawing Room Orchestra, the award winning female a cappella group Just Voices and his own Palm Court Trio. More recently he has given presentations and performances for the London Light Music Meetings Group. He is currently Pianist and Music Manager at the Royal Academy of Dance, and became conductor of the Eltham Park Pleasant Sunday Afternoon Orchestra in 2016.
I worked with Martin at the Bromley Operatic Soc in the 80’s. We had many enjoyable rehearsals together. He is a brilliant accompanist. I’m now 86 and living in Spain and I’m still singing!
Just wondering if and when the Pleasant Sunday Afternoon concerts will take place this year at Eltham Park Methodist Church. Many thanks.
we don’t currently know when the next event will be, but there was recently a concert on the 30th of January, so I’m sure another will appear very soon!
