Alan Leith (actor and singer)
I was recently in contact with an old student of mine from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School – Alan Leith.
It was a short note to introduce my new website to him but, mainly to say I found an old recording of me singing Ombra Mai Fu, assured that this will bring back memories of Alan’s time spent at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
I went on to ask him if he still sang, because most of the old students of that era still do today, which I think is fantastic. I always remember Alan having a good tenor voice in his youth and presumed it is still with him, and encouraged him to sing along with me via the website. Well I was so pleased to hear back from him…I would like to share some of his comments…
Dear John, Great to hear from you and listen to you singing so well! Yes, I did join in! I loved my singing lessons with you John and they’ve kept me in good stead ever since.
I’ve performed in many musicals over the years ( including the premier of Blood Brothers as Mr Lyons in 1983) and sing with 2 local choirs now. One for the classical stuff and one for popular song…
Many thanks John, All Good Wishes, Alan
