Stuart began singing with the Wyre Forest Young Voices, a community choir in Worcestershire at the tender age of nine. He performed in many concerts across the UK with the choir as well as in international concert tours to Poland, Estonia and Cyprus, both as a choir member and also as a soloist. He went on to study at the Royal Northern College of Music to obtain his first class honours degree, where he is currently in his first year of his master’s degree.
Performance roles include Figaro The Marriage of Figaro, Schaunard La bohème and Dottore La traviata (Heritage Opera), Sciarrone Tosca (Mananan Opera), Aeneas Dido and Aeneas (Eboracum Baroque). At the RNCM, he has played Harry Easter in Street Scene and Barabashkin in Paradise Moscow. He has also performed as a chorus member in Verdi’s Aida with Opera Holland Park.
On the concert platform, Stuart has performed as a soloist in Handel’s Messiah (Todmorden Choral Society and Rotherham Choral Society), Fauré’s Requiem (Marple Choral Society and Wyre Forest Young Voices), Duruflé’s Requiem (Manchester Chamber Choir at the Bridgewater Hall), Haydn’s Mass in Time of War (Gainsborough Choral Society), and Mozart’s Requiem (Wolverhampton Chamber Choir).
During the 2013 Rugby League World Cup opening ceremony at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Stuart hijacked a staged interview with Gethin Jones to perform the song Delilah by Tom Jones as part of a flash mob in front of 50,000 people.
He currently is a Lay Clerk at the Manchester Cathedral where he performs in the services of Choral Evensong and Eucharist.
