Cornwall Symphony Chorus are delighted to welcome Peter Ferris, tenor, as their guest soloist for this concert. Peter was born in Penzance, with his primary education at Ludgvan County Primary School, he then went on to attend Mounts Bay Secondary School and lastly Cornwall Technical College where he qualified as an electrician.
Peter joined a local male voice choir at a young age, following in his parent’s musical footsteps. As his love of singing and music grew he started performing locally as a recitalist and guest artist. After seeking the advice of fellow Cornish opera singers, Benjamin Luxon and John Treleaven, he decided to give up his job as an electrician and try for a career as a professional opera singer.
He was awarded a place at The Royal Northern College of Music, graduating in 1998 with a BA honours degree in Music. In the same year, he was invited to perform with Glyndebourne Festival Opera Company. Peter still works at Glyndebourne and has been with the company for over 20 years, where he has performed as both a soloist and a chorister.
While working at Glyndebourne, Peter won the prestigious Wessex Prize for his singing.
Peter now lives in Sussex with his wife and two children, but always comes back home to Cornwall with his family every year.
