Print Friendly Page 
Connor Burrowes Connor Burrowes was born in 1983 and is the eldest of five children. He is presently a Music Scholar at Charterhouse School in Surrey where, in addition to his singing, he is studying piano, clarinet and saxophone. Between 1991 and 1996, Connor was a chorister at St Paul's Cathedral, London and it was there that he blossomed musically, under the direction of the charismatic John Scott. In addition, for three years he sang with the prestigious King's Consort, directed by Robert King. As a soloist he encompassed a wide range of choral music, both in the Cathedral and on the concert platform.

His concert debut occurred at the London Spitalfields Festival when he was just 10 years 3 months old, in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas directed by Richard Hickox. Since then he has worked with many conductors and artists including Michael Tilson Thomas, Bryn Terfel and Marvin Hamlisch. During 1996, as this young artist reach his full maturity as a treble, he featured as a soloist on no less than eight recordings. More recently he has been involved in his school's many musical projects and has still found time to record and promote two solo CDs in Japan. -- Guild Music
