Peter Davoren (Tenor)

Born: England

The English tenor, Peter Davoren, obtained a Bachelor of Arts 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. In his final year, he won the Elgar Prize for Orbin in Caractacus.

After Leeds, Peter Davoren 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 J.S. 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.
