Trinity Boys Choir comprises pupils of Trinity School, Croydon, and has been directed by David Swinson since 2001. The boys frequently appear in operas at Glyndebourne, The Royal Opera House, English National Opera, Garsington, and throughout the world. The choir is especially well known for its role in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which it has appeared in over one hundred and fifty professional performances, on the Warner DVD, on the Virgin Classics CD, and on Glyndebourne’s own label CD. On the concert platform, the choir is regularly invited to perform at the BBC Proms and with all the major London orchestras and has toured with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir in Spain, Germany, and Italy. Recent engagements have included Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, and Italy, and a performance of Mahler’s 3rd Symphony with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in last year’s BBC Proms Festival. On August 1st, the Trinity Boys' Choir from the UK will stage at the Shanghai Grand Theatre, bringing a cool summer breeze to the audience in Shanghai.
