Paul Sherman is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he studied the double bass with Thomas Martin and Kevin Rundell. He has been a member and principal player with the English Chamber Orchestra for over thirty years and has recorded, toured and performed with them in over 40 countries and was until recently responsible for co-ordinating the ECO’s education and outreach activities.

Paul enjoys an active career performing, often as a guest principal player, with a wide range of the UK’s leading period, modern and contemporary orchestras and ensembles. Chamber music is a particular passion and he spends much time researching neglected repertoire and unearthing and reviving forgotten musical gems.
