Nigel Perrin is an internationally renowned choral musician, constantly in demand as a conductor, teacher and director of choral workshops and summer schools. He began his musical life as a chorister at Ely Cathedral and won a choral scholarship to Kings College, Cambridge where he studied under Sir David Willcocks. He then became well-known as the high voice of The King’s Singers, recording 25 albums, travelling the world and performing with stars from Cliff Richard to Nana Mouskouri to Kiri Te Kanawa.
In 1986, Nigel started an elite chamber choir, Bath Camerata, which has won prizes in France, Italy and Ireland and, in 2002, won the Sainsbury's/BBC TV Adult Choir of the Year at the Royal Albert Hall, in London. They have recorded and given recitals all over the world.
In 1990 he was appointed Musical Director of the City of Bath Bach Choir (CBBC) founded in 1946 and later, in 2000, the Exeter Festival Chorus (EFC), founded in 1993, both to which he has brought his inimitable mix of energy, inspiration, perfectionism and humour.
Nigel also teaches at the Wells Cathedral Specialist Music School. Occasionally he disappears to China or Indonesia to adjudicate a music competition; and in summer is likely to be found running choral weeks in Europe.
