We are delighted to welcome British tenor Gwilym Bowen to our roster, who joins us for general management with immediate effect.
Born in Hereford, Gwilym was a choral scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating with Double-First class honours in Music, before studying at the Royal Academy of Music.
A specialist in Baroque ensemble music, Gwilym’s collaborations to date include performances with the Academy of Ancient Music, The English Concert, Dunedin Consort, Ensemble Orlando Fribourg and the Netherlands Bach Society. On the concert platform he appears regularly with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, City of London Sinfonia, the Auckland Philharmonia, and the Seattle, City of Birmingham, Adelaide and West Australian Symphony Orchestras. Gwilym is equally in demand on the operatic stage, having performed roles for Angers-Nantes Opéra, The Grange Festival and Classical Opera.
In the current season Gwilym sings the world premieres of James MacMillan’s All the Hills and Vales Along at the Edinburgh Festival and Dussek’s Mass in G with the Academy of Ancient Music; Messiah with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra conducted by Stephen Layton; Christmas Oratorio with the Oslo Philharmonic; St John Passion with the Ensemble Orlando Fribourg and the English Concert, and Evangelist in St Matthew Passion with BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by John Butt.
