Peter Stark Conductor

Peter Stark’s performances as a conductor are exhilarating, imaginative and inspiring. At the heart of all his work lies a passion and commitment to the study and practice of music to profit humanity. Peter is Rehearsal Director to the European Union Youth Orchestra and Professor of Conducting at London’s Royal College of Music. He has taught over six hundred private students, and his acclaimed courses in conducting have taken him across the world. His reputation as a teacher and mentor is internationally renowned. Whilst having performed with a number of the world’s leading ensembles such as the London Symphony Orchestra, the Hallé, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra Peter fosters a hunger to work with any orchestra that plays with spirit and enthusiasm. Peter’s growing media profile includes his appointment as series consultant to the popular BBC television series ‘Maestro’ and regular screen appearances as a mentor. For this role Peter was responsible for the training of eight ‘celebrity’ students as orchestral conductors. Peter has since made live ‘Maestro’ webcam commentaries for the BBC Proms and a subsequent TV series. In addition to his work with the world’s finest students, Peter has conducted youth orchestras ranging from the Hertfordshire County Youth Orchestra (Principal Conductor since 1994) to the New South Wales Public Schools’ Symphony Orchestra in Australia, the Ung Filharmonie of Norway and the Toyota City Orchestra in Japan. He is Principal Guest Conductor of the Singapore National Youth Orchestra and was Principal Conductor to the Arabian Youth Orchestra in Dubai . Between 1985 and 2010 Peter was Conductor in Residence of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
