Simon is one of the core members of “Opera in The Open” which puts on 4 operas each August, that are free to the public (funded by Dublin City Council), to increase awareness and popularity of Opera, and get it away from the perception that classicalmusic is not for everyone…from humble beginnings, in 2010, they have up to 2000 people at each performance.

As well as performing many times in venues around the world as a classical artist, he has also a wealth of experience doing large big band material as well as with more intimate Jazz set ups in venues from Dublin to New York (where he held a concert at the infamous “Don’t Tell Mama’s”)
