“Richard Wilberforce trained at St John’s College, Cambridge and the Royal College of Music, where he was the recipient of a number of awards. His career as a countertenor led him to sing solo roles in many of Europe’s principal opera houses, such as the Staatsoper unter den Linden, the Tiroler Landestheater Innsbruck, the Théâtre du Capitole and the Grand Théâtre de Provence. He continues to sing regularly with the Monteverdi Choir.

He was for five years Director of the Hallé Youth Choir, working closely with Sir Mark Elder, and continues to work with many of the UK’s leading choirs, including, the Leeds Philharmonic Chorus as Chorus Master, the Exon Singers as Conductor and Artistic Director, and English Voices as Associate Artistic Director, as well as guest directing the London Philharmonic Choir, the BBC Symphony Chorus, and the Huddersfield Choral Society. Richard shares his time between the UK and Paris, where he conducts the Jeune Choeur de Paris and Maîtrise de Paris, and teaches choral direction at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris. His work in France has led him to chorus master productions at the Philharmonie de Paris, the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, and the Opéra de Rouen. ”

Under its new director, Richard Wilberforce, the Hallé Youth Choir was especially impressive.

The highlight came when the Hallé Youth Choir gathered […] Near me a group of women had a little cry when the choir sang Jerusalem. It was that special.
