Singer // Composer

Piers Connor Kennedy is a Welsh-Irish singer and composer based in Suffolk. Having sung with the choirs of Worcester Cathedral, St John's College Cambridge and Christ Church Cathedral Oxford, Piers now sings with London-based consorts including The Tallis Scholars, Tenebrae, SANSARA, Siglo de Oro and Ensenble Pro Victoria.


Piers recently completed his DPhil in Composition, supervised by Prof. Martyn Harry, at St Cross College Oxford, where he held the Hélène La Rue Scholarship in Music. His music has been performed internationally by ensembles including The Gesualdo Six, The Choir of Westminster Abbey, Ex Cathedra and The Choir of Trinity Wall Street.


Specialising in vocal and instrumental composition, Piers has received commissions from The Three Choirs Festival, the Edington Music Festival, SANSARA, Ensemble Pro Victoria, Christ Church Cathedral Choir Oxford, and The Choir of St John's College - the latter four of which have made recent recordings of his music.

Recent commissions include Mobile for pianist Sam Mitchell (recorded by Corelli Recordings), In the Midst for Sansara with violinist Julian Azkoul (recorded by Apple Music’s Platoon label), Nowel el el for Ensemble Pro Victoria and harpist Cecily Beer (recorded by Delphian), and five flowers for Hugh Cutting - co-commissioned by BBC Radio 3 and Wigmore Hall.

Piers' residency as Associate Composer at St Peter's College Oxford (2022-3) will culminate in a full-length album recording of commissions in June 2024. Current projects include commissions for the choirs of Salisbury, Wells, and Truro Cathedrals.
