Nigel Perrin - Musical Director of EFC

Nigel Perrin’s musical career has progressed from chorister at Ely Cathedral, through choral scholar at King’s College Cambridge and original top voice of the King’s Singers, to becoming one of the UK’s leading choral directors.

Since being appointed Musical Director of Exeter Festival Chorus in 1999, Nigel has led the choir into numerous challenging and exciting ventures.  Under his leadership, EFC has premiered seven major contemporary choral works in the South West; there have been tours to Russia, Germany and France; the choir has recorded CDs, won competitions, and been invited to perform in many charity concerts.

Nigel works regularly as consultant to many other choral groups around the country.  His choral workshops always attract large numbers of singers from all over the UK and abroad.  His busy schedule includes directing five choirs, giving masterclasses, leading international summer schools, adjudicating and teaching voice at Wells Cathedral Specialist Music School.

He has worked with and conducted many of the UK’s prestigious orchestras, including the BSO, and the coming season includes concerts in Madrid and Israel and a baroque performance of Bach’s B minor Mass in Budapest.
