Hailed by Classic FM as "doing a great deal to encourage choral singing", Scott Inglis-Kidger is a conductor, vocal coach and singing teacher based in London. He is Founder and Director of Platinum Consort and Director of Music for Thomas's Choral Society. Born in 1984, Scott Inglis-Kidger was brought up on a farm in the North East of Enlgand, where he concentrated on his first instrument, the Scottish bagpipes. He discovered singing in his teens and was inspired to read Music at the University of Cambridge, where he studied voice with David Lowe. Whilst at Cambridge he gained an MA in Music and sang as a countertenor in the world famous King's College Choir. In addition to conducting, Scott directs many workshops around the country and is much in demand as a vocal coach for individuals and groups, and as an early music specialist. He was previously Director of Music at Willington Independent Preparatory School and Thomas's Preparatory School, Battersea, establishing highly regarded liturgical choirs in both schools.
