Howard recently retired from the Finance Office at the University of Bath, to spend more time learning to play the guitar (a diverse musical range from Paul Simon and Elton John to Creedence Clearwater Revival) and maybe improve his skiing.
Earliest musical influences were from my mother’s collection of World Record Club classical records and music lessons at Brentwood School, of particular note being Mahler’s second symphony heard from the school library one hot summer day.
Live music experiences range from school trips to the opera in London. Proms at the Albert Hall, Rick Wakeman and Bath Festival concerts.
Howard is treasurer of Bath Hospital Radio.
