Adrian Partington (organ)

Adrian Partington is an English conductor, chorus master, organist and pianist. He is currently director of music at Gloucester Cathedral, joint conductor of the Three Choirs Festival and artistic director for the Gloucester festival years, director of the BBC National Chorus of Wales, conductor of Bristol Choral Society and Gloucester Choral Society and leader of the postgraduate choral conducting course at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.

The son of professional musicians, he was a chorister at Worcester Cathedral, studied at the Royal College of Music and was organ scholar at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle and King's College, Cambridge. He returned to Worcester as assistant organist before turning more of his attention to choral conducting. In 1999, he was appointed director of the BBC National Chorus of Wales—a position which he still holds, and has involved preparing the chorus for many concerts, broadcasts, appearances and recordings. He also conducts several concerts himself each season, as well as other BBC engagements such as conducting the televised Swansea link at the Last Night of the Proms and recording the soundtrack for one series of Doctor Who. He has also worked with many of the big London choirs, not only preparing choirs for some of the great conductors of our time, but also as conductor himself.

He remains an active organist and pianist, appearing as organ soloist and recording several solo organ CDs. He frequently performs with leading instrumentalists as a pianist, such as Baroque violinist and co-leader of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment Margaret Faultless with whom he gives recitals in the UK and Germany.
