Patrick Dupre Quigley, conductor, is founder and artistic director of the indie-classical ensemble Seraphic Fire. Recent guest conducting engagements include Mozart's Requiem with the The Cleveland Orchestra, Handel's Messiah and a program of the music of Ligeti and Berio with the San Francisco Symphony, Haydn's Symphony No. 99 with the Utah Symphony and Bach and Purcell with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra. This season Quigley leads the Kansas City Symphony and the National Arts Centre Orchestra (Canada).
Quigley founded Seraphic Fire to explore music whose live performance was new to both the community and the performers. The company's repertoire spans a millennia. Seraphic Fire’s educational outreach programs reach thousands of students each year, from elementary to graduate school. The Seraphic Fire Media recording catalog contains sixteen titles; two are recipients of GRAMMY® nominations. Quigley has led Seraphic Fire since 2002.
