Patrick Dupre Quigley, conductor, is founder and artistic director of the Seraphic Fire. Recent guest conducting engagements include programs with the San Francisco Symphony, The Cleveland Orchestra, the Utah Symphony and 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.
