Andrew Hewitt (Tenor, Composer)

Born: March 28, 1976 - England

The English tenor and composer, Andrew Hewitt, was classically trained from childhood as a pianist and tenor singer. He won music scholarships and entrance bursaries to Westminster Abbey Choir, Uppingham School, the National Youth Music Theatre, St Johns College, Cambridge and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Before university Andrew Hewitt had already toured chorally worldwide, and on graduation in 2000 continued on to perform regularly in concerts, global tours and CD recordings for such classical groups as John Eliot Gardiner's Monteverdi Choir, Robert King's The King’s Consort, The John Rutter Singers, Synergy, Opera Rara, the London Voices and Metro Voices. These performances covered every style, from contemporary premieres, to session choirs, and Baroque, classical and avant-garde works.

At Abbey Road and Air Studios Andrew Hewitt performed on many film scores, for such conductors as John Williams and Howard Shore - including the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Doomsday and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Andrew Hewitt is a composer for film and television. He is Associate Member of PRS For Music, a member of BASCA, and recently accepted invitations to become a member of both the World Soundtrack Academy and BAFTA.
