Soprano Opera Singer UK Cheryl Brendish
Intimiate Opera Cornwall 

Ben was born in Redruth and has spent most of his life living in Cornwall. He is primarily a ‘cellist but of late has enjoyed success as a tenor soloist throughout the county.
As a boy, he spent 6 years singing at Truro Cathedral, including a memorable performance of Parry’s ‘I Was Glad’ for the Queen in the Jubilee year of 1977. In 1993 he attended the Birmingham Conservatoire of Music as a ‘cellist, but joined the superb Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir, notable performances including Durufle’s Requiem at St. Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham and 3 sell out evenings of Handel’s Messiah in Frankfurt Cathedral.

Ben then took up singing with Bob Bowman in Penzance, and has since performed regularly in festivals, oratorios, and gala performances. He has sung with Duchy opera in numerous country house concerts, and as a soloist at the Hall For Cornwall in both the Parisienne and Russian evenings. He has also been guest soloist with Marazion Apollo, Mousehole, Newquay and Fourlanes male voice choirs and has guested at the Last Night of the Proms with Helston Town Band and St. Keverne brass band.
Ben's most recent performances include guest soloist at the Cornwall Symphony Chorus Christmas special in December 2017 and most recently as guest soloist with St. Austell choral Society in their 'Victorian' Evening in November.

Ben is now a member of 'The Celtic Male Ensemble', who perform regularly throughout Cornwall and who have just taken part in the Cornwall International Male Voice Choral Festival in May, being voted the best choir in Cornwall, and the best UK choir under 40 voices.

He is delighted to be taking part in the inaugural 'Intimate Opera' performance.
