Join Robert as he talks with a wide range of guest from across the classical music world.
“Robert is one of our finest young conductors and is trailblazing a wonderful career throughout Wales and well beyond. He is a unique talent.”
Welsh conductor and presenter Robert Guy is an outstanding musician in high demand, who has conducted more of the main classical and romantic repertoire than most of his generation. State-educated in Wrexham, North Wales, Robert is passionate about making classical music accessible to everyone; utilising the art’s unique potential to inspire, communicate, connect and empower. Robert was introduced to music at the age of three, when he was taught piano by his grandmother who noticed that Robert was having difficulty with his hearing. He was later diagnosed by doctors as being 70% deaf. After a series of operations, Robert was completely discharged from hospital aged sixteen, by which time his hearing had been fully restored. He has since gone on to forge a successful career as a conductor and educator, working at home in the UK and internationally, with orchestras, choirs and young people. Robert is the recipient of the inaugural Hilary Tann Award for outstanding achievement in music in Wales 2023, awarded by the Welsh Music Guild.
