Peter Pears

Peter Pears (Tenor)

Born in Farnham in 1910, Pears was educated at Lancing College, Keble College and the Royal College of Music. Whilst working with the BBC Singers in the mid-1930s he met Benjamin Britten, who would become his lifelong partner: the pair initially collaborated as lieder recitalists, emigrating to America together conscientious objectors shortly before hostilities broke out in 1939.
