David Crown

David Crown has been singing and conducting choirs and orchestras since his teens. He won a Choral Scholarship to King’s College, Cambridge and was also a university instrumental award holder on the viola. Immediately after leaving university he embarked on a career as soloist in opera and oratorio winning several competitions. He also built a considerable reputation as singing teacher and now teaches at Oxford and Bristol Universities as well as privately. In more recent years he has left the world of solo singing and returned to his first love of conducting. He is Director of Music at Somerville College, Oxford, and Music Director of the Reading Phoenix Choir, The Oxford Singers and The Wychwood Chorale. His work with choirs and orchestras has attracted superb notices in the UK and abroad. He is also increasingly in demand for master-classes. Somerville have been invited to sing Evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral twice in the coming year and will be taking part in the Britten in Oxford festival in 2013 as the only collegiate choir.
