An internationally renowned choral musician and former boy chorister of Ely Cathedral, Nigel Perrin was a choral scholar at King’s College, Cambridge, where he studied under Sir David Willcocks.
On leaving Cambridge, he first became well known as the high voice of The King’s Singers and for eleven years travelled the world on concert tours, recording some twenty-five albums and appearing in countless television shows with artists as diverse as Kiri Te Kanawa and Sir Cliff Richard.
This background and experience formed the basis of his current career, conducting, directing choral workshops and summer schools, adjudicating and teaching.
Nigel Perrin has been a specialist choral adjudicator for many years and is much in demand for his instructive and encouraging masterclasses. Having established Bath Camerata as one of the country’s leading chamber choirs, he is greatly sought after as an inspiring choral conductor.
He directs the City of Bath Bach Choir and Junior Choir, the Bath Festival Chorus, the Exeter Festival Chorus and the Bath Spa University Choir and works regularly as consultant and motivator to many other choral groups around the country.
In recent years Nigel has conducted the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bournemouth Sinfonietta, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and has worked with the London Mozart Players on several occasions.
In 2011 Nigel was the guest conductor for the SCCG Verdi Requiem at Tewkesbury Abbey, with the Bristol Concert Orchestra and WNO soloists and in 2013 conducted the SCCG Sea Symphony concert.
