Over more than 30 years, Michael Chance has established an international reputation as performer, teacher and director across a broad spectrum of opera, recital, oratorio and recordings. He has embraced old and new music with equal passion, having notable roles and songs cycles written for him by composers from Harrison Birtwistle, Judith Weir and John Tavener, to Richard Rodney Bennett, Tan Dun and Elvis Costello. His range has helped develop the possibilities both for the counter-tenor voice and the interest in and passion for earlier repertoire.

Michael Chance has performed in most of the great opera houses and concert halls, has made over 150 recordings and teaches at the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal Conservatorium in The Hague, in his own Siena Summer Academy in Italy, and in masterclasses all over the world. He is CEO and Artistic Director of The Grange Festival, Hampshire.
