“Director of Sounds Baroque, Julian Perkins leads a varied career as a conductor, soloist, and chamber musician. He has appeared as a soloist and director at London's Southbank Centre, conducted staged productions for the Buxton Festival and New Kent Opera, and will be conducting Mozart’s La Finta Giardiniera for the Dutch National Opera Studio in 2012. He often performs, records, and tours with many of the UK's leading period instrument ensembles, appearing at New York's Lincoln Center, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, BBC Proms, and at international festivals in Antwerp, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Halle, Madrid, and Paris. Together with his early experiences as a professional consort singer with groups such as the Monteverdi Choir, Julian is ideally qualified for his numerous partnerships with renowned soloists, conductors, and ensembles.
After reading music at King’s College, Cambridge, Julian studied primarily at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, the Royal Academy of Music, and with Trevor Pinnock CBE. A recipient of many awards, Julian was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in recognition of his standing in the music profession.”
