Patrick Peire (Conductor)

Born: 1946 - Bruges, Belgium

The Belgian conductor, Patrick Peire, is graduate of the Conservatoires of Ghent and Brussels, besides having also degrees in psychology and musicology.

Patrick Peire is the chief conductor of the Collegium Instrumentale Brugense, which he founded thirty years ago with the specific aim of using modern instruments, yet keeping the original style and character of each piece of music. As musicologist he often searches through archives in order to find lesser-known music. He lectures at the Music Colleges of Higher Education in Ghent and Leuven, and combines this with giving chamber music, masterclasses and concerts. Besides conducting the Collegium and the Capella Brugensis, his own chamber chorus, he has also conducted the New Flemish Symphony Orchestra for eight years, allowing him to explore the symphonic repertoire. The quality of his musicianship is such that he is now much in demand as guest conductor of other orchestras, both nationally and internationally.
