Simon Whiteley (Bass)
Simon is currently a Bass Lay Clerk at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. From here he forges a solo and consort singing career.
He started his musical life as a chorister at York Minster, and has since held Choral Scholarships at Lichfield Cathedral and Royal Holloway, University of London. It was at Royal Holloway that Simon gained a First Class mark for the Performance part of his Music degree, and an Upper Second Class degree overall. He was also awarded the Pompilia Legge Scholarship, and the Driver Prize for excellence in the Performing Arts. From Royal Holloway, Simon moved to Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford as a Lay Clerk, and then on to St George's, Windsor in March 2007.
Simon has performed a large number of major oratorio and operatic roles, including Handel's Messiah, Bach's St John Passion (Christus and Pilatus), Haydn's Creation and Purcell's Dido and Aeneas (Aeneas). He also sings with a number of choirs in and around London, the BBC Singers (with whom he has sung as a soloist) and Polyphony being perhaps the most notable. He is the Bass in the six-piece a capella group The Queen's Six, and a member of the baroque group The Rococo Consort.

Simon started his musical career as a chorister at York Minster, moving on to gain three music scholarships to St. Peter's School where he studied for a handful of GCSE's and A-Levels. From here, Simon moved to Lichfield for a year where he was a choral scholar and teaching assistant at the cathedral and its accompanying school. It was there that Simon realised he wanted to continue his singing to a higher standard.
Last year, Simon graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London with an Upper Second class degree in Music, a First in Performance. As a Choral Scholar and solo performer, he gained both the Pompilia Legge Scholarship, and the Driver Prize for excellence in the Performing Arts.
In 2005, Simon was short-listed for a Bass Lay Clerkship at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, and offered places at both Gloucester Cathedral and Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, where he is now a Lay Clerk and freelance singer.
Having sung professionally with a number of different choirs, made a number of recordings (some as a soloist), and also being a keen composer, Simon plans to stay in Oxford for the foreseeable future to progress both his career and musicality.
