Clive Whitburn

main-background

Clive's music has been performed in theatres, venues and festivals throughout the UK. Recent performances of his choral music have been in St Martins in the Field, London and The Underground Theatre, Eastbourne.

 

Clive writes music in a wide range of styles and genres, exploring the themes he believes important. This  ofen influences the choice of texts for vocal and choral music as well as the titles and subtitles of instrumental pieces.

 

He is  fascinated by the physical placement of performers and  site specific music.  "Music for Rooftops" is written  for a brass quintet placed 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 performed frequently with the major orchestras including the RPO, LSO, BBCSO, CBSO and Philarmonia, under such conductors as Askenazy, Richard Hicox and Gati and in major venues including the Albert and Festival Halls and O2 Arena.

 

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