Paul Ingram - Director of Music
Paul began conducting while reading for a chemistry degree at Nottingham University, where playing the cello in orchestras led to a chance to direct a chamber orchestra. When he moved to Oxfordshire to begin a career in teaching, music continued to be an integral part of his life. He was instrumental in founding Kidlington Amateur Operatic Society in 1977, and five years later became music director of Woodstock Music Society.
