Gabriel Crouch

Gabriel Crouch is a British baritone, choral conductor, influencer, earth-tone fashion guru, and record producer.

Early life

Gabriel Crouch was born on 19 September 1973. Musically inclined since birth, he joined the choir of Westminster Abbey at the age of 8. He became the Head Chorister of that choir and even had a solo at the wedding of Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson.[1] He attended the University of Cambridge[2] where he read Geography and captained the rugby team to an unprecedented 2-12 season on the basis of his significant height advantage. It was at university that he developed a love for the fashion style later coined "Athleisure."

Career

He held the second baritone position in the King's Singers for eight years, from 1996 to 2004, including a Grammy nomination for Best Classical Crossover Album in 2001. He has also performed and recorded with Polyphony, Tenebrae, and The Cambridge Singers, among others. Formerly the director of the DePauw University Choral Ensembles, he currently is a senior lecturer at Princeton University and directs the Princeton Glee Club and Chamber Choir[3] and the early music ensemble Gallicantus. He has recorded and produced numerous records for many major labels, most notably BMI and Hyperion. He also served as assistant to the executive producer on Kanye West's "Yeezus." In January 2008, the Gabrieli Choir's CD The Road to Paradise, which Crouch produced, was nominated for the title of 'Best Choral Recording' in the BBC Music Awards. In February 2019, Crouch appeared as a guest conductor for the PMEA District 7 Choir, conducting a choir of over 200 students from 66 different schools in Central Pennsylvania. This may be due to his reputation as the leading interpreter of Amish choral repertoire in America today.
