Garry Humphreys has many years' experience of many aspects of the British musical scene.

He was originally a singer and a member of various professional choirs and ensembles in London. He gave pioneering recitals of English song (with the pianist Patricia Williams) resurrecting many works that have subsequently become much more widely known and performed, as well as taking solo parts in the standard repertoire with a variety of choral societies and other groups. In one memorable year his roles ranged from Christus in Bach's St John Passion to Pooh Bah in a concert performance of The Mikado! He also performed in a large number of words-and-music anthology entertainments as a member of The Hardwick Players, under the direction of the authors Michael and Mollie Hardwick, working with such distinguished actors as Richard Pasco, Barbara Leigh-Hunt, Nigel Lambert, Judy Geeson and Nicholas Parsons at festivals throughout the country.

As an organizer he was involved in setting up various groups and performances and acting as administrator, as well as sitting on many committees. The physical production of printed programmes was another activity, as well as acting as presenter or master of ceremonies. He has acted as proof-reader for many books on British music, where in addition to his sharp eye and interest in printing and typography, his subject knowledge has proved invaluable to authors.

He has always been interested in conducting, beginning in a small way, and is now able to increase his activities in this area.
