Music Director - Benjamin Kirk
Benjamin Kirk (b.1992) began his singing career as a chorister at Ripon Cathedral, in 2001. After finishing at Christ’s Hospital school in 2011, Benjamin moved to Tallinn, Estonia, to begin studying Choral Conducting at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, under Tõnu Kaljuste. Thus began a love affair with Baltic, Nordic, and Russian choral music that Benjamin is committed to sharing with audiences around the world.
Benjamin won 3rd Prize at the 2019 World Choral Conducting Competition in Hong Kong, and is the Musical Director of the Bath Camerata, the Leeds Guild of Singers, and the Lea Singers (Harpenen). Since 2021, Benjamin has been a Guest Conductor with the National Forum of Music (NFM) Choir in Wrocław, Poland.
As a chorus master, Benjamin has prepared some of the world’s leading choirs, including the Swedish Radio Choir, the French Radio Choir, and the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir.
