Singing teacher

Our singers can arrange individual lessons on an occasional basis with Peter Davoren > a leading operatic tenor and experienced teacher. These lessons take place in a separate room alongside rehearsals, in which Peter often takes an active part, leading warm-ups and advising on vocal practice.

Peter obtained a BA degree at the University of Leeds where, as the Choral Conducting Scholar at St Anne’s Cathedral, he conducted the world premiere of Colin Mawby’s Magnificat For Full Choir, receiving glowing praise from the composer. He won the Alison Silverside Award for Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin in his first year and, in his final year, he won the Elgar Prize for Orbin in Caractacus.

After Leeds, Peter was awarded the Dr Ralph Kohn Scholarship to attend the Royal Academy of Music (2008-2010). At RAM he gained plaudits for his recital singing at the Chelsea Lieder Festival, Oxford Lieder Festival and the Wigmore Hall, leading to a Lieder night in the Duke's Hall with Dame Felicity Lott. On the oratorio stage he has performed as Evangelist in JS Bach’s St John Passion (BWV 245), and since October 2007 has been a regular performer for the Monteverdi Choir with John Eliot Gardiner, making his BBC Proms solo début in Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610. He later studied at the Dutch National Opera Academy, where he obtained Master of Art degree in Opera (2010-2011).

Since September 2012, Peter Davoren is active as a freelance singer in the fields of opera, oratorio and Lieder. He has performed major roles in operas including Donizetti L’elisir d’amore, Poulenc’s Les mamelles de Tirésias, and Rossini’s Il Signor Bruschino with the Dutch National Opera Academy.

In 2016 Peter started his collaboration with Petros Singers as a singing teacher, providing vocal coaching to individual choir members.
