EX CATHEDRA | George Parris - spring 2022

George Parris was brought up in South Warwickshire where in 2011 he founded The Carice Singers, named after Elgar’s daughter. He then read Music at the University of Cambridge followed by a Master’s in Musicology at the University of Oxford.

In 2017 George began studying Choral Conducting at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland, under Prof. Nils Schweckendiek. During his time in Finland, he has become Artistic Director of award-winning choir Spira Ensemble and Choir Director at the Church of Olaus Petri. He is also a regular member of the Helsinki Chamber Choir and sings in many other project-based groups.

George has also been invited to work with the Croatian Radio Choir, Coro Casa da Música in Portugal, Key Ensemble in Finland, and is thrilled to be Ex Cathedra’s Associate Conductor for Spring 2022.
