A dynamic and innovative conductor and keyboard player, Christopher Monks is the founder and Artistic Director of Armonico Consort.

He has conducted at many of the major concert halls in the UK and abroad, including the Royal Albert Hall, the Barbican, Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, the Bridgwater Hall in Manchester, the Symphony Hall in Birmingham, Tel Aviv, Naples, Paris, Dublin and Sardinia. In addition to his work with Armonico, he has conducted ensembles including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia, and European Union Chamber Orchestra, and has worked regularly with many of the major UK festivals.

Christopher studied music at the University of Cambridge, and then with David Hill at Winchester Cathedral, before collaborating with many of the world’s greatest conductors as a keyboard player with the CBSO.

Specialising in the music from the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical, Christopher’s performances have earned him several five star reviews in The Times and The Independent, and his recordings are played regularly on Classic FM, BBC Radio 3, and on radio stations across the globe.
