Stephen Cleobury has for over thirty years been associated with one of the world’s most famous choirs, that of King’s College, Cambridge. His work at King’s has brought him into fruitful relationships with many leading orchestras and soloists, among them the Academy of Ancient Music, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Philharmonia, Britten Sinfonia, the BBC Concert Orchestra, and the distinguished ensemble, Endymion, and he has worked with many artists - singers and instrumentalists - of international repute. He complements and refreshes his work in Cambridge through the many other musical activities in which he engages.
