Angus Morton was a founding student at Orpheus and is now an ambassador for the Centre. Angus has Asperger's. He faces some challenges at times with his anxiety but his music and love of Orpheus allows him to have an outlet through his singing and involvement with the Centre. With a fine tenor voice, his singing is both emotive and uplifting. Angus was 21 when he first came to the Orpheus Centre. Inspired by Pavarotti, a young Angus sang himself hoarse copying him. The high point of his singing career was performing in front of the entire Royal family on the occasion of the Queen’s 80th birthday celebration at Buckingham Palace. In 2018 he played the lead role in Orpheus the Mythical at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s theatre, The Other Palace. He is a member of the Kentish Opera Society and the Paddock Wood Choral Society.

 

“Orpheus was a wonderful place to be and they helped me through very difficult times.“
