Stephen Allen has been the musical director of Warley Male Choir since 2003, a position he feels privileged to have. He continues to challenge the choristers and audiences with a wide and varied repertoire. He has enjoyed conducting the choir at many prestigous venues which include Tewkesbury Abbey, Worcester, Chester and Gloucester Cathedrals as well as Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
Stephen works as a Senior Technical Underwriting Manager for the General Insurance Business of a major UK insurer, a demanding role which involves much travel around the country. He has raised funds for many charities through running, most recently completing his 4th London Marathon for Children with Cancer UK; a hobby he enjoys to relax, keep fit and help others. He is also partial to fine wines and cooking and is very proud of his daughter, Charlotte, following in his love for music on brass and piano.
