Choral and Orchestral Conductor, Tenor, Musicologist
"Conductor Cole Bendall was excellently in command of proceedings..."
"[Bendall] managed to coax some variety of dynamics in the resonant, domed sanctuary and the brass chorale theme emerged sonorously."
Lawrence Budmen, South Florida Classical Review
"[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."
This Summer, I'm working in Miami at the Miami Music Festival as an Orchestral Conducting Fellow; with the Hallé Choir in a masterclass, and as part of the music team of the National Youth Girls Choir of Great Britain.
In September 2022, I'm joining the staff of the Cranleigh School, Surrey, as Visiting Singing Teacher. As such, my availability for teaching is getting more limited! If you wish to enquire about my availability, you can do so and book lessons with me directly on MusicTeachers.co.uk here.
As ever, I am happy to be contacted about prospective projects or for teaching work either remotely via online platforms, or in-person - please use the contact form to get in touch.
