In Conversation: Owain Park (2013)


Alumni are invited to join us online for an evening in conversation with Owain Park (Music, 2013). Owain will be sharing his experiences as a performer and composer in conversation with Mike Waldron (2006). Alumni may already be familiar with some of Owain’s work such as the album Park: Choral Works, a recording of his music by the Trinity College Choir, and the Te Deum written for the Master’s installation in 2019.

Owain Park was born in Bristol in 1993. His compositions are published by Novello, and have been performed internationally by ensembles including the Tallis Scholars and the Aurora Orchestra. He holds a Masters degree in composition from Cambridge University and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists.

As a conductor, he maintains a busy schedule of projects with ensembles including the BBC Singers,  London Mozart Players and the Academy of Ancient Music. His own vocal consort, The Gesualdo Six, tour extensively around the world and have been lauded for their interpretation of renaissance and contemporary music.

Michael Waldron was a chorister at St Ambrose College before a gap year organ scholarship at Worcester Cathedral. He was Organ Scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge, for four years from 2006-2010, graduating with a Masters degree and BMus. Michael now maintains a busy schedule as a freelance conductor, having worked with the Philharmonia Orchestra, City of London Sinfonia, Academy of Ancient Music, Britten Sinfonia, and London Mozart Players. He is founder and director of the London Choral Sinfonia, receiving considerable critical acclaim for both concerts and commercial recordings.
