Choral and Orchestral Conductor, Tenor, Musicologist
"Conductor Cole Bendall was excellently in command of proceedings..."
"[Cole Bendall] melded the voices into a harmonious whole; articulate, with clarity of diction and a clear understanding of the sentiment of the music and words."
"Cole Bendall’s direction was very impressive, keeping the music flowing but allowing enough room for the individual parts to come through clearly."
Edinburgh Music Review
"Cole Bendall leads an enthusiastic team, for the Reid Consort is dedicated to the development of aspiring professional choral singers in central Scotland. It is a privilege for me to watch its progress. Sixty minutes seemed a very short time as they sung Lagrime di San Pietro with such finesse."
Happy new year! Work over the coming few months includes with the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra, Covent Garden Sinfonia and supporting the choral provisions of Ark Music, Surrey County Council and Kingston Music Service. I'm also delighted that the Reid Consort will be returning to perform this coming year and more information will be released on this in due course.
