CONDUCTOR

1BrettWeymarkColourHR

Brett Weymark was born in Sydney and trained at the University of Sydney and NSW Conservatorium of Music. His singing teachers included Dr Susan Falk, Dr Jean Callaghan and Dr. Rowena Cowley.

As a conductor, his mentors have included Mats Nilsson, David Porcelijn, Janos Furst, John Hopkins, Patrick Thomas and Simon Halsey and his training has included study in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States. In 2002, he was awarded a Centenary Medal for his service to music - in particular, choral performance.

He has held positions with The Song Company, Opera Australia, Pacific Opera, Sounds Baroque, Cantillation and The University of Western Sydney.  He is currently the Music Director of The Sydney Philharmonia Choirs - a post he has held since 2004.

He has worked with many of the major musical organisations in both in Australia and internationally including the BBC Proms, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The Orchestra of the Antipodes, Western Australian Symphony Orchestra and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.  He has appeared in productions with Opera Australia and Pinchgut Opera and has recorded a wide range of films scores from Happy Feet to Mad Max: Fury Road.  He appears on a number of ABC Classic recordings both as a conductor and a singer.

He has conducted many world premieres of works by composers such as Peter Sculthorpe, Dan Walker, Paul Stanhope, Elena Kats Chernin, Andrew Schultz and Matthew Hindson.  He initiated the ChorusOz project at the Sydney Opera House in 2005 which now draws hundreds of singers each year to explore choral works over the long weekend in June at the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House.  The 2015 event attracted over 1000 singers.  He has chorus mastered for Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Charles Mackerras, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Paul McCreesh and Edo de Waart amongst others.  His performance of Purcell’s King Arthur was nominated for a Limelight Award and his work as chorus master on Stravinky’s Oedipus Rex and Symphony of Psalms (directed by Peter Sellars) won a Helpmann Award.

Recent conducting highlights have included the world premiere of Paul Stanhope’s Jundamarra with the Sydney Symphony as well as conducting their Tea and Symphony and Mozart in the City series, Purcell’s King Arthur for Brisbane Baroque, ANZAC Day concerts for the Queensland Symphony, Haydn’s Creation with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Bach’s St John Passion with the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs and Handel’s Jephtha for Canberra Choral Society.  Future engagements include conducting Handel’s Messiah for New Zealand Symphony and acting as Chorus Master in Adelaide Festival’s production of Saul.

“The orchestra performed in top form. Under the baton of Brett Weymark, the punchy orchestral delivery was unmistakably modern.” - South China Morning Post, May 2015

“…Brett Weymark deserves a medal for conducting Purcell’s long and multi-facted score with such style and panache.” Clive Paget, Limelight Magazine. April 2016
