Owain Park (director)

Owain Park was born in Bristol in 1993. As well as directing The Gesualdo Six, he maintains a busy schedule of conducting projects with ensembles including the Southbank Sinfonia, the BBC Concert Orchestra, Ensemble La Sportelle and Capella Cracoviensis. Owain is Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Singers and formerly Musical Director of Cambridge Chorale.

Owain’s compositions are published by Novello and have been performed internationally by ensembles including The Tallis Scholars and the Aurora Orchestra. While at Cambridge University he studied orchestration with John Rutter, before undertaking a master’s degree in composition. He is Composer-in-Residence for the London Choral Sinfonia, and was one of BBC Radio 3’s ‘31 under 31 Young Stars 2020’. An album of his compositions recorded by The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge was nominated for the 2019 BBC Music Magazine Awards. In 2023, Battle Cry, a collaborative album by mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston and theorbo player Toby Carr featuring Owain’s composition as the title track, won the Gramophone Award for Best Concept Album.

Owain is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists (FRCO) and was awarded the Dixon Prize for Improvisation, having been Senior Organ Scholar at Wells Cathedral and Trinity College Cambridge. He was a Tenebrae Associate Artist for two seasons and has worked with ensembles such as The Sixteen, the Gabrieli Consort and Polyphony. Owain is a keen gardener, and when he’s not on stage he can be found raking, pruning, or picking cherry tomatoes.
