Kevin Fox (Choral Conductor, Counter-tenor)

Born: San Francisco, California, USA

The American choral conductor and counter-tenor, Kevin Fox, grew up singing in boys choirs in San Francisco since the age of 8. He holds degrees in Music (with Honors) and Economics from Wesleyan University, Connecticut, where he studied voice with tenor Wayne Rivera, conducting with Mel Strauss, composing with Neely Bruce, and received the Lipsky Prize for outstanding scholarship in choral studies. He studied music at Oxford University with Edward Higginbottom, and choral conducting at Westminster Choir College in Princeton with Jim Jordan and Vincent Metallo.

Kevin Fox has served as Proctor for the American Boychoir from 1996 to 1997, working with Jim Litton and Craig Denison. He has sung with the American Bach Soloists, the Arcadian Singers and Jubilate Chamber Choir of Oxford University, the choirs of Trinity Church New Haven, Trinity Church in Princeton, and the Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys in San Francisco, where he also worked as Interim Assistant Choirmaster. He has also sung with Connecticut Concert Opera, and currently sings counter-tenor at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.

Kevin Fox is the founding director of the Grammy-winning Pacific Boychoir, and the Music Director for the Pacific Boychoir Academy. Under his direction, the Pacific Boychoir Academy has grown from six to 120 choristers in four treble choirs and one alumni choir. Working with the Academy staff, Kevin Fox has developed a proprietary music reading and music theory training program comparable to university-level music classes. In 2002, he developed a business plan for the choir school, a comprehensive document compiling the ideas of staff and board members in preparation for the opening of the school in the fall of 2004. Kevin Fox is on the faculty of Cathedral School for Boys in San Francisco. Jared Stewart is his nephew.
