About Kristian Thorkildsen

Young Tenor and Cellist, Kristian Thorkildsen!
Singer (tenor)

Kristian Thorkildsen is a 22-year-old Tenor from Hastings, East Sussex. He is currently a student at the University of Chichester Conservatoire, studying BMus Vocal Performance, where he focuses on classical repertoire. During his time in Chichester, he has taken part in choral groups including Chamber choir and Otter consort. His most recent vocal achievement came with Otter Consort’s performance of Handel’s “Acis & Galatea”, as he performed as Acis. Alongside this, as a cellist at grade 8 standard, he is a frequent member of the University Baroque orchestra and recently led the cello section in the “Spectre Orchestra”, a large-scale project devoted to the music of the James Bond franchise. Kristian’s vocal interest was influenced through singing in his local church, St Peters Bexhill, as a young chorister until the age of 18. Currently, he is a choral scholar at Arundel Cathedral, singing in weekly Eucharist’s and occasionally weddings/funerals. During his A-levels, Kristian travelled up to London every Saturday to study at the Royal College of Music as a junior, participating in London’s finest youth choirs, Parry Voices. Kristian Sings various genres from musical theatre to classical. Kristian is currently working on a main role part as Nanki Poo, in ‘The Mikado’… a G&S production.

Kristian is tremendously reliable and his communication is great, he has consistently aced the challenges he’s been set and is always ready to take on additional work. His repertoire knowledge is outstanding and his singing voice is beautifully mellow and rich. Look no further if you are searching for a top notch tenor, I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Kristian Thorkildsen has been a student of mine for the last two years, both in one to one singing lessons and as a member of the University Chamber Choir and our smaller vocal ensemble, the Otter Consort. Kristian has a mellifluous sweet toned tenor voice, which he uses musically and expressively. He is a loyal member of our vocal ensembles, and shows leadership, and admirably is always ready to give encouragement and confidence to younger students in the tenor section. Last summer he sang the tenor solos in a University performance under my direction with our Baroque Orchestra in a performance of Handel Acis and Galatea, to great critical acclaim. He also sang some solos for me in a public performance with the East Sussex Bach Choir in Lewes, and here he performed with great assurance and innate musicality. I have invited Kristian to sing the tenor solos from Handel’s Messiah with Eastbourne Choral Society later this month. All these performing opportunities are giving him invaluable concert experience. He is an impressive young singer, and I recommend him warmly to you. John Hancorn Associate Lecturer in Choral Studies University of Chichester Conservatoire
