Tomos Watkins

Collegium Singers' Musical Director from September 2017

Tomos has extensive experience in choral conducting and intends to share his enjoyment of choral singing at the highest level with the group.

He had directed many diverse ensembles, from choral societies to small operatic companies, however his real interest is in chamber ensembles. With previous groups he has explored music on a very wide and diverse musical palette, from C14 Machaut to present day Björk. He is committed to using his own experience as a highly respected singer and soloist to enable singers to develop their own vocal and artistic skills in a range of genres. 

During his studies at Oxford University he was senior organ scholar at both Pembroke College and the large central St Giles' Church; both positions came with responsibilities for training and directing the choirs. He sang with Oxford's prestigious Schola Cantorum and held important administrative roles with the group. He won a conducting scholarship with the Sing for Pleasure organisation and still works in Oxford regularly as Musical Director of the Faded Ink Productions opera company. 

Tomos graduated with Distinction from his Master's in Choral Conducting at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, where his tutors described him as an instinctive and gifted musician, his conducting technique being sensitive, technically assured and deeply musical with an ability to get the best out of singers.
