Meet Thomas

Thomas Caplin (1960) Professor, choral leadership and management. Mr Caplin received his education as a singer, conductor and choral pedagogue at the Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen and at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm. He is frequently engaged as guest conductor and clinician, and as adjudicator in competitions in Norway and abroad since 1994, where he has been adjudicating in choir competitions on more than 30 occasions, including World Choir Games in 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2016. Among Caplin’s fields of expertise, he is particularly renowned as a specialist within the psychological/pedagogical aspects of choral leadership, coupled with the traditional perspectives of choral conducting and the overall running of a choir including all aspects. Another area where his knowledge and understanding is in demand, is the cross section between classical/traditional leadership and rhythmic choral leadership.
