     Goodman, Roy (21st January 1951-Present)

    He is a violinist, conductor and previous boy treble born in Guildford, England.  After making his name known as the boy treble who sang with the King's College Choir, Cambridge, on their acclaimed recording of Miserere by Gregorio Allegri , he studied violin, conducting and organ at the Royal College of Music in London, and upon graduating was qualified in each of these subjects as well as teaching and musicology.  After embarking on his professional career he became a violinist and a concertmaster and worked with major conductors that include Sir Simon Rattle , Sir Roger Norrington, Sir Charles Mackerras and Sir John Eliot Gardiner.  As a solo violinist he has performed with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Peter Schrier and the BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra and Vladimir Ashkenazy with the Philharmonia Orchestra .  In 1985, after having been invited to conduct he joined the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and quickly gained recognition that led him to being offered the post of Principal Conductor of The Hanover Band.  Since that time he has conducted orchestras in many nations of the world including Scandinavia, Britain, Germany, France and the United States among others. Recording over 100 CDs he was one of the first to record using historic instruments for complete symphonies, which is assisted by his interest and knowledge in historical performance practice.  Appearing on television and radio he has performed with the Prague Chamber Orchestra and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and in his concert appearances he has conducted twenty world premieres.  Since 2000 he has been the Principal Conductor of the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra in Winnipeg, Canada.
