Founder and Musical Director of the SWPC, Marcus Alleyne started his musical career at the age of 11 with piano tuition and a role as an active chorister. At 15 he took part in his first opera taking the lead role of Tamino, in Mozart’s Magic Flute – one of the youngest tenors in Europe to do so. During this time, he continued classical voice training.
Whilst studying, Marcus received the Young Musician of The Year Award and in the same year the Tim Timmis “Services to Music” award. Following a successful military career, he later studied music at Plymouth University and worked closely with the Artistic Director of Peninsular Arts, Simon Ible. He has been fortunate to work with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Composer Nigel Shaw, Percussionist Evelyn Glennie and Guitarist Craig Ogden.
