Simon Holt Director of Music
Simon Holt has been our director of Music since September 2012. He comes to us from England where he studied at the Royal College of Music and Goldsmith's College. He is a reknowned organist and music director, having performed extensively in Europe and England, including at Westminster Abbey and Royal Albert Hall. He and his wife founded the Calvary Music School in Stonington, he is the founder and artistic director of the Salt Marsh Opera Company here in SE Connecticut, and he works with the Westerly Land Trust on a major theatrical renovation project. We are thrilled to have his experience, expertise and great good humor with us!

Simon Holt, executive director of the United Theatre on Canal Street was with Saunders and the 50 or so others, savoring the news and celebrating.
"Rhode Island has set a precedent," said Holt, who is also the artistic director of the Salt Marsh Opera Company. "It is just amazing and very, very exciting. History in the making."
Holt told the Sun earlier this year that the money would be used to help the United Theater fulfill its mission to become a premier center for performing arts, cinema and arts education in Southern Rhode Island by helping complete the renovations to the 88-year-old building.

The opera is conducted by Simon Holt, executive and artistic director of the opera company.
Salt Marsh Opera was founded by Holt in 2000. Demand for Salt Marsh Opera tickets has been higher than ever as the company broadens its role in the region's arts and entertainment scene. In each of its previous eight seasons, Salt Marsh Opera has enjoyed sold out productions, including "Madama Butterfly," "Tosca, Cosi fan tutte," "La Bohème," "La Traviata," "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" and "Lucia di Lammermoor. Salt Marsh Opera also presents operatic soirées, rehearsals and lectures open to the public at local schools - as it will this year for "Die Fledermaus."
"Our wish is to present opera in an intimate setting as originally intended," says Holt.

CMS Director Simon Holt is committed to developing CMS into a first-rate academic music institution, encouraging its students to embrace music in a serious way. Music instruction should be pursued as not only fun, or an after-school hobby, he believes, but as a thoughtful endeavor that can significantly enrich one across several dimensions, musically, culturally, intellectually, and spiritually. Similar to ranking systems used in many sports, the ABRSM language is being used to assess and communicate ability levels. Simon believes that shifting the emphasis toward something that is more purposeful and goal-focused, rather than simply meeting each week for a lesson, can be highly motivating to certain students. He believes that encouraging students in this way can make music instruction more meaningful, and encourages both students and parents to feel a greater commitment to succeeding musically.
Students can opt to participate in the program by simply speaking with their teacher or Simon Holt or by contacting the CMS office for more information.
