Bob Chilcott b. 1955

One of the most active composers and choral conductors in Britain today * Since 1997, has concentrated on choral composition, conducting, and promoting choral singing * Worked extensively as a conductor with choirs and festivals throughout the world

Bob Chilcott has been involved with choral music all his life, first as a Chorister and then a Choral Scholar at King's College, Cambridge. Later, he sang and composed music for 12 years with The King's Singers. His experiences with that group, his passionate commitment to young and amateur choirs, and his profound belief that music can unite people, have inspired him both to compose full-time and, through proactive workshopping, to promote choral music worldwide.
