Our Musical Director - Rose McPherson

Rose was brought up in Wirral and studied piano with Menai Griffith.  She attended Wirral Grammar Girls school, where singing and choral ensemble work furthered her love of music.

She trained at Manchester University as a primary school teacher and her teaching career took her to many schools in Wirral plus an opportunity to teach overseas.  She joined her husband in teaching in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the Seychelles.  Her love of music and singing has fashioned her teaching style throughout her career.

Rose has played an active role in Birkenhead Operatic Society playing in a wide range of shows - The Merry Widow, Kismet, Oklahoma, Carousel, Anything Goes to name a few.  She has directed shows for Castaway Youth Theatre which include Oliver, Sound of Music, Joseph and the Wizard of Oz.  She still enjoys being accompanist and chorus mistress for the Wirral Singers, who perform all over the Wirral raising funds for local charities.  

"I'm delighted to have been appointed to the role of Musical Director of Capriccio to help guide and work alongside such a great bunch of singers, and aim to blend the traditional style and genres with more contemporary pieces!".

Susan Acty

Our Musical Director (1991 - 2021) - Susan Acty

In 1991 Sue founded the Capriccio Singers and held the Musical Director role until her retirement in 2021, and is missed by all those who sang under her directorship. 

 

Sue was born and bred in Liverpool, and was taught to play the piano from a very early age.  Sue’s passion for music grew, and she went on to study and master the pipe organ under the direction of Dyleth Jones.   

 

Sue graduated from Liverpool College of Occupation Therapy in 1973, and pursued a successful career lecturing in anatomy and physiotherapy, and later specialised in paediatrics in Newcastle.  Alongside her career, Sue directed choral groups and orchestral ensembles for over  30 years.
