Scott Williams

CHOIR - 50TH BIRTHDAY - TABERNACLE, PONTYCYMER 016
Born in 1980 at Neath, Scott was educated at Brynteg Comprehensive School in Bridgend and later studied at the University of Bath where he attained a Master of Mathematics - MMath (Hons) - degree.

His musical career started as a chorister at St Mary’s, Nolton Church in Bridgend, where he was successful in obtaining the Royal School of Church Music St. Nicholas Award, incorporating keyboard skills. He was also an active member of the regional RSCM Cathedral Singers and it was under an RSCM initiative for young organists that Scott commenced his organ playing career.

Scott first performed with Bridgend Male Choir at a concert in Leatherhead, Surrey in October 2008.  Since then, he has been a regular contributor to concert performances with the Choir, including tours of Liverpool, Scotland, North Wales, Ireland and Majorca.  Of the many prestigious concerts that Scott has been involved with, he considers the privilege of playing the organs of St. David's Hall; Clifton, St. Asaph, Wells and Palma Cathedrals as being personal highlights.  He also sang with the choir at the Principality Stadium as part of the pre-match build-up to the 2016 Wales v France Six Nations rugby international.  

Last summer, Scott accompanied Pendyrus Male Choir as guest organist on their tour of Poland. Scott was involved with the recording of the choir's 50th Anniversary CD "Classic Male", and features in their most recent CD “#Sounds Like”.   At present, Scott works as a private maths tutor in the Bridgend area.
