Gabriel Crouch is the Director of the Princeton Glee Club.
Gabriel Crouch is a Senior Lecturer in Music and Director of Choirs at Princeton University. He began his musical career as an eight-year-old in the choir of Westminster Abbey, where he performed a solo at the wedding of HRH Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson. After completing a choral scholarship at Trinity College, Cambridge, he was offered a place in the renowned a cappella group The King's Singers in 1996. In the next eight years he made a dozen recordings on the BMG label (including a grammy nomination), and gave more than 900 performances in almost every major concert venue in the world. Special collaborative projects saw him working and performing with some of the world's most respected artists, including
- percussionist Evelyn Glennie,
- pianists Emmanuel Ax and George Shearing,
- singer Barbara Hendricks and
- 'Beach Boy' Bruce Johnston.
Since moving to the USA in 2005, first to run the choral program at DePauw University in Indiana, and now at Princeton University, he has built an international profile as a conductor, with recent engagements in China and Australia as well as Europe and the United States. 2010 saw his first appearance as a conductor at an ACDA convention, as well as his first All-State choral engagement in Kentucky.
When the academic calendar allows, Gabriel maintains parallel careers in singing and record production.
