Hailed by Classic FM as a “rising star of the choral world", Scott Inglis-Kidger is known for his passion and dedication as a conductor and vocal coach. Born in 1984, Scott was brought up playing the Scottish bagpipes at home on a farm in the North East of England. He later discovered singing, going on to read Music at the University of Cambridge and join the world famous King's College Choir as a countertenor. His love of exquisite vocal music was the motivation behind the formation of Platinum Consort during his final year at Cambridge.
Scott is equally at home directing large orchestral and choral forces as he is in the intimate setting of consort music. Highlights of his nine sell-out concerts as conductor of Thomas’s Choral Society include Handel's Messiah with the Saraband Consort, Rutter’s Requiem with Lakeswood Sinfonia, and the world première of Richard Bates' large-scale commission, The Vigil, with Platinum Boys' Choir.
As a former Director of Music in two London prep schools, Scott continues to inspire and encourage many young singers. His skill in transforming choirs and singers of any age and ability is outstanding, whether it be with seasoned professionals, choral amateurs, or the thousands of viewers of his YouTube channel, Sing with Scott. One singer described his participation in a session with Scott as “the most amazing musical experience of my life!". With bespoke workshops sold out months in advance and performances described as “pristine” and “intimate” (BBC Music Magazine), Scott is making a significant impact on the world of choral music.
