Richard Nye
Richard Nye began his musical career as a chorister at Gloucester Cathedral and went on to study music at Southlands College, London. He has, over the years, combined a career as a teacher (he is currently Director of Studies at Dumpton School, Wimborne in Dorset) with his desire to compose. His work has been performed, published and recorded by a wide variety of individuals and groups both in the UK and abroad (including Canada, USA and Europe). 2006 saw Richard share a stage with Sir John Tavener and the first performance of a new commission, Colour Poems, by the Cheltenham Bach Choir, conducted by Stephen Jackson, to mark their 60th year. Future projects include a new work for eight hands on two pianos, an orchestral piece for children and a music theatre project with his friend and collaborator, Ian York.
