James Gilchrist collaborates with Kings College, Cambridge in a week long residency, during Stephen Cleobury’s final Easter season as Music Director of the Choir of King’s College. James returns to King’s College Chapel following his formative years as a choral scholar in the choir, conducted by Cleobury, whilst studying medicine at King’s College. Celebrated as one of the finest Evangelists of his generation, during the residency James will sing two recorded performances of Bach St Matthew Passion in the chapel alongside Mark Le Brocq, Matthew Rose, Sophie Bevan, David Allsopp and William Gaunt. He also performs a more intimate recital with pianist Anna Tilbrook featuring Schubert, Philips and Barber, and joins the choir for a choral programme of Joubert, Leighton and Holloway.
During the Easter week James also sings St Matthew Passion at Cadogan Hall alongside the Academy of Ancient Music, and travels to Snape Maltings for a performance of Bach St John Passion. Following Easter performances throughout the UK, in May James travels to Singapore for Beethoven Missa Solemnis with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, and to the US for performances of Haydn’s The Creation for Dallas Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Matthew Halls.
