I had the great pleasure to work with Alexander Grove who has a fine tenor voice... with an easy top and lovely timbre - a fine musician. - NICOLAI GEDDA

Described by the BBC as “England’s Mario Lanza”, by The Times as “simply brilliant” and Opera Magazine as “the Danilo of one’s dreams…”, Alexander Grove is an award-winning English tenor performing internationally, known for his wide range of repertoire, intelligent and exciting interpretations, engaging stagecraft and acting ability and warm toned, yet flexible vocal ability. He is considered to be one of the most versatile tenors to emerge from the UK in recent years. A former chorister of St Paul’s Cathedral, London and trained at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, Alexander’s career currently spans the opera, oratorio, concert and musical theatre stages, television, radio and recordings: from Abbey Road Studios, London to performing to capacity crowds of over 30,000 per night in some of Europe’s largest arenas such the O2, to leading roles in A stage opera houses and the West End. Alexander is also a resident member of the Gothenburg Opera, Sweden: one of Northern Europe’s leading opera houses.

Alexander has performed over 60 operatic / operetta roles, and is also in demand on the concert platform having performed the majority of the oratorio repertoire and given recitals and galas in festivals and tours covering the length and breadth of the UK for the majority of his life. Internationally his career has taken him all over the world from the USA and Europe to Japan and as far as Teatro Amazonas in Brazil.

Amongst others, he has been a soloist under the batons of Sir Georg Solti, Kent Negano, Simon Halsey, Sir Edward Downes, Sir David Wilcocks, Pier Giorgio Morandi, Edward Gardner, Noel Davies, Tobias Ringborg and Daniel Harding and studied under many world class artists including Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and Nicolai Gedda.

In addition to performing, Alexander is a vocal + stagecraft coach and consultant. He supports students through his private studios: the Gothenburg Opera Studio and the Gothenburg Vocal Academy as well as being a Visiting Fellow of the University of Aberdeen.

As a producer Alexander is creator of the international 3 Tenors Ensemble - TENORI, performing 3 tenors concerts for corporate and private clients; and co-producer of Fource: a four female opera rock group. He is also a published opera critic reviewing for various online classical music and operatic publications.
