Julian Gregory Deputy Music Director, Tenor

Julian Gregory

Julian Gregory started his singing career at the age of 8 as a boy chorister at St John’s College, Cambridge, under the legendary Dr. Christopher Robinson. Following five years as a Music Scholar at Eton College and a Choral Scholarship at Norwich Cathedral, he returned to St John’s in 2009 to read Music as a tenor Choral Scholar and violinist Instrumental Scholar. After graduating from Cambridge University, Julian spent a year studying German at Heidelberg University, and went on to the Royal Academy of Music. There he completed his Masters with Distinction in Vocal Performance studying with Neil Mackie and Ben Johnson, and has since then been awarded an Associateship (ARAM).

In September 2014, Julian took up the tenor position in the internationally renowned vocal sextet, The King’s Singers. He subsequently spends over 200 days away on tour each year, with around 120 concerts annually across six continents. Aside from having the opportunity to perform regularly on many of the world’s most prestigious stages, his personal highlights during his time in the group so far include singing on BBC2’s Carols from King’s on Christmas Eve 2020; the launch of TKS’ Finding Harmony project, which celebrates music that has brought communities together around the world and throughout the ages, in the face of hardship; co-founding The King’s Singers’ Global Foundation; and leading on the group’s PR & cultural relations with Japan.

Away from his singing and KS commitments, Julian is the Assistant Director of the UK-Japan Music Society, which lies close to his heart with his half-English, half-Japanese heritage; it brings together musicians from both countries and culminates in regular concerts across Europe and Japan. He is also a keen squash player, which helps keep him fit and overcome jet-lag between tours.
