Geoff Woods – Musical Director
Geoff grew up in a very musical house, constantly playing and being influenced by all genres of music, completing his classical music grades and performing gigs before he left school. Geoff was a member of Platinum selling Indie pop band ‘ Picturehouse’ in the 90’s, and spent almost ten years touring internationally on the strength of three widely acclaimed studio albums.
This will be Geoff’s fourth season with KMS. He loves the positive atmosphere, huge talent, and ambitious choices the Society makes, and he is looking forward to getting started on a very exciting season!
