Our accompanist

Suzy Ruffles

Suzy Ruffles took a postgraduate diploma in piano accompaniment at Trinity Laban, studying under Eugene Asti and Christine Croshaw. Following this she worked predominantly as a repetiteur and Assistant Musical Director for opera companies including Hampstead Garden Opera and Blackheath Halls Community Opera before developing her current specialism as a choral accompanist, formerly for Greenwich University Choir under Nicholas Jenkins and Jonathan Schranz and the Godalming Choral Society and currently for Woking Choral Society and Holmbury St Mary Choral Society, both under Cole Bendall, and as a dep for the Bach Choir.

During the pandemic, Suzy developed a side-line of recording learning tracks for choirs as well as for operatic and musical theatre roles. She also discovered a passion for church music and can be seen most Sunday mornings helping to lead worship at Woking United Reformed Church.
