Wynne Evans appointed trustee of Grange Park Opera
Opera singer Wynne Evans has been appointed a trustee of Grange Park Opera, Surrey.
The Welsh singer – best known for his role as Gio Compario in the Go Compare insurance adverts – will take up his new role with immediate effect.
Wynne says of his appointment “It may come as a surprise to some people, but yes I really am a bone fida opera singer, and opera is my first passion. I am beyond excited to join the team at Grange Park Opera, where I’ve enjoyed some of the most atmospheric performances of my career, and have even bought a new tie and pocket square in honour of the occasion.
He added “If anyone from GoCompare is reading, it goes without saying that comparing insurance comes a very close second to opera in terms of passion areas in my life. I will do everything I can to support Grange Park Opera, Surrey, in delivering its vision, and am honoured to be appointed a trustee for this dynamic organisation.”
Simon Freakley, Chairman of Grange Park Opera said “We are delighted to welcome Wynne to the Grange Park Opera board. His extensive experience as a singer with some of the major opera houses in the world together with his broader work as a broadcaster will enable him to make a rich contribution.”
