Richard Black (tenor)

Richard Black began studying voice with Norma Hunter in 1991 while completing a Science Degree at Adelaide University and singing under the inspiring direction of Hilary Weiland in the Adelaide University Choral Society. He was soon invited to become a member of the highly acclaimed Adelaide Chamber Singers directed by Carl Crossin OAM. In 1994 Richard moved to Sydney to join Australia's premier vocal ensemble, The Song Company, a position he held until 2017, having rejoined in 2002. Richard was a member of the choir of St James’ Church, King Street for eighteen years, and a founding member of both ACO Voices and Cantillation, with whom he recorded many CDs and film scores, and a chorus member in many of Pinchgut Opera’s performances and recordings. He has appeared as a soloist for The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Salut! Baroque, Australian Baroque Brass, The Sydney Consort and many of Australia’s university and chamber choirs. With a keen interest in early music, its transcription, and historically informed performance, he has also formed, directed and sung in two vocal ensembles: Renaissance Men and Chroma. Richard’s full-time work with The Song Company saw him touring overseas and interstate on a regular basis. This was combined with a busy schedule of subscription concerts in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra performing a vast range of repertoire from mediaeval chant and renaissance polyphony, through to contemporary, classical and popular music, and an education program spanning all levels and ages.
