Ed Suttle started singing at a tender age at a small private school in England. If you could sing you were in the choir whether you enjoyed it or not. Fortunately, he did!
He has sung first bass (although occasionally masquerading as a second bass and even a tenor) with the Sydney Chamber Choir since 2003 and is the choir’s regular bass/baritone soloist.
Ed has presented recitals in Sydney, Goulburn, and the UK. He has also sung in the Opera Australia chorus, and with Sydney Philharmonia Motet, Contemporary Singers, Cantillation, Australian Brandenburg Choir, Parsons Affayre, St Mary’s Cathedral Choir, and probably others he can’t remember.
When not singing Ed ran his own Executive Search business for 25 years, and he retired (yes, it is THE best time of life) in early 2017. He now runs a 230-acre Angus cattle property outside Goulburn with wife Jane, heads a group building Australia’s largest community-owned solar farm, and is Chair of the board of the Hume Conservatorium of Music.
Over the years he has developed a stiff upper lip and a very thick skin; physical attributes gained as a result of a lifetime supporting England cricket.
