David Clegg

David Clegg began his singing career when he was judged " Choirboy of the Year" in 1983. Educated at Winchester College and New College, Oxford he is currently on a scholarship as a postgraduate at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.  

Since leaving Oxford in 1995 he has pursued an active freelance singing career in both a choral and a solo capacity, singing with many of the leading vocal ensembles in the country including the Monteverdi Choir, the Gabrieli Consort, the King's Consort and Polyphony. As a soloist he has appeared with the English Chamber Orchestra, the City of London Sinfonia, the Orchestra of the Birmingham Royal Ballet and he made his solo debut of Radio Three in a concert live from the Barbican centre accompanied by the Academy of Ancient Music. 

His solo work has taken him throughout the United Kingdom and also to Europe and America, where he was invited to sing Purcell at the centenary celebrations at Harvard University. The coming season sees concerts in Paris, Utrecht, Helsinki, Tallinn, Oslo and Stockholm as well as appearances in British festivals. His repertory stretches from baroque to contemporary and he has given the first performance of music written by the composer Geoffrey Burgon, which can be heard on the soundtrack to the hit BBC TV series 'Silent Witness'.  

His opera roles range from Bluff in Mozart's 'Der Shauspieldirector' to the title role in Peter Maxwell Davies' 'Notre Dames des Fleurs'. In 1997 he made his debut at the Dartington International Summer School in Anthony Rooley's production of 'Albion and Albanius', where he played the part of Albanius, and was invited to return the following year.  

He currently studies with David Pollard.
