Nick Tudor

Award: Hayes Award

Year: 2017

Genre: Musical Theatre

Location: Royal Academy of Music

Nick began piano lessons at the age of six and has continued playing to this day; he studied at the University of York with Sarah Beth Briggs. Whilst at University, Nick pursued many lines of interest, most proudly of which was his directorship of the University's musical theatre ensemble, Vocal Point. This gave him the chance to explore a wide variety of different musicals, particularly highlighting some of the lesser known off-Broadway and off-West End material. Nick was also in high demand as an accompanist, and performed such works as Schumann's Frauenliebe und Leben and many Benjamin Britten arrangements.

Nick's musical theatre experience ranges from French horn in Jekyll and Hyde, to viola in multiple Gilbert and Sullivan productions, to wielding the baton for Into The Woods at University, as well as being MD for a large pantomime and two sell-out cabarets as part of the Guildford Fringe Festival. 

Nick hopes to continue to build on his experiences, and is excited at the prospect of studying at one of the world's leading conservatoires. He is extremely grateful for the support of a Help Musicians UK Lesley Hayes Award.
