Rev. Paul Ward is the Director of Our Lady’s Choral Society. Paul is a singing member of the choir since 1985 (celebrating 30 years in 2015). He was appointed Director in 2005 and in 2010 was re-appointed for a further five years.
As Director Paul is responsible for the administration of the society and for the organisation of OLCS concerts and events which includes booking of artists, orchestras and venues and liasing with other organisations, composers and groups regarding joint ventures and he chairs the OLCS Committee. He also has a strong sense of pastoral care for the members.
Paul considers his membership of the choir and the singing of a vast OLCS repertoire since 1985 to be a valuable musical education in oratorio and choral works. He works closely with the music director in maximising the choir’s potential.
