“Clearly a brilliant and inspirational figure.” —Chicago Sun-Times

Conductor Patrick Dupré Quigley is the founder and artistic director of the internationally-acclaimed ensemble, Seraphic Fire. He frequently collaborates with the Cleveland Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony, and the New World Symphony. He was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for his recording of Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem.

This season, Quigley takes the podium at The Cleveland Orchestra in Mozart, the Utah Symphony in Haydn, and Seraphic Fire in masterworks of Bach, Monteverdi, Pärt, and the Pulitzer-prize-winning David Lang. Mr. Quigley is a Music Director finalist for the Spartanburg Philharmonic, leading that ensemble in Sibelius’s Symphony No. 2, along with music of Gliere and Mozart.

In addition to his busy guest conducting schedule, Quigley regularly leads Seraphic Fire on critically-acclaimed tours. His performances have been described by the press as “extraordinary” (Gramophone), “authoritative” (The Philadelphia Enquirer), “inspirational” (The Chicago Sun-Times), “vivid, sensitive” (The Washington Post), and displaying “transformative brilliance” (New York Lucid Culture). He is the recipient of the Robert Shaw Conducting Fellowship, the ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award, and the Louis Botto Award for his entrepreneurial leadership of Seraphic Fire.

Over his fifteen seasons at the helm of Seraphic Fire, one of the country’s premiere professional choral-orchestral ensembles, Quigley grew the organization’s budget to $1.6 million, started the Seraphic Fire Youth Initiative, launched the Seraphic Fire Media label (with two GRAMMY® Nominations), established Seraphic Fire’s endowment, inaugurated a unique young artist professional training program with the Herb Alpert School of Music at UCLA, and released fourteen recordings on the SFM label.

Quigley holds degrees from the Yale University School of Music and the University of Notre Dame. He lives with his husband in Washington, D.C. where they are restoring a turn-of-the century row home.
