Clive Whitburn

main-background

Clive's music has been performed in a number of theatres, venues and festivals throughout the country from Devon to Kent, London to Hull. Recent performances of his choral music have been in St Martins in the Field and The Underfround Theatre Eastbourne.

 

Clive often explores themes he sees as important. This can inflence the choice of texts for vocal and choral music as well as the titles and subtitles of instrumental pieces.

 

He is  facsinated by the physical placement of performers and  site specific music.  "Music for Rooftops" was written  for a brass quintet on the roof of an iconic building, with three additional trumpets on nearby rooftops. The sound ricochet's and swirls around the audience below.

 

An experienced choral singer, Clive has frequently performed with the major orchestras including the RPO, LSO, BBCSO, CBSO and Philarmonia, under such conductors as Askenazy, Richard Hicox and Gati.  

 

He has also performed his songs extensively with his two acoustic duos, “5th Quarter” with fiddler Jerry Bird  and “Loggerheads” with guitarist Mike Foyle.
