    Tarik O'Regan

    Visiting Artist

    BioTarik Hamilton O'Regan is a London-born composer based in San Francisco. In recent years much of his work has investigated and been influenced by his dual Arab and Irish heritages.

    As of the 2021/22 season, Tarik is the newly appointed Composer-in-Residence with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (PBO), where he is also overseeing an ambitious new commissioning initiative. After three albums of his compositions were released last year, this year sees an exciting return to live performances with premieres by the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, Pacific Chorale and Pacific Symphony, Amy Dickson at the Presteigne Festival, and PBO, among many others.

    Tarik’s output, recognized with two GRAMMY® nominations and two British Composer Awards, has been recorded on over 40 albums, and is published exclusively by Novello. He maintains a longstanding commitment to education and service to the arts in general. Most recently, this has been recognized by his election to an Honorary Fellowship of Pembroke College, Oxford, and to the board of Yaddo, one of the oldest artists’ communities in the USA.

    Tarik is included in the Washington Post’s annual list of creative artists “changing the classical landscape” for 2022.
