Michel Corboz reçoit une première formation au Conservatoire de Fribourg (Suisse), où il étudie le chant, la composition, puis la direction. Sa connaissance et son amour de la voix le conduisent à diriger des œuvres inspirées par elle : chœurs a cappella, cantates, oratorios, opéras baroques. Après avoir fréquenté longuement Monteverdi, Vivaldi et Bach, il se tourne avec bonheur vers les grands oratorios classiques et romantiques.

Il fonde en 1961 l’Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne groupe de chanteurs choisis. Les distinctions et l’accueil de la presse pour ses enregistrements du Vespro et de l’Orfeo de Monteverdi, en 1965 et 1966, marquent le début de sa carrière internationale.

Depuis 1969, il est chef titulaire du Chœur Gulbenkian à Lisbonne, avec lequel il explore le répertoire symphonique.

Ces deux formations sont étroitement liées à son parcours professionnel ; c’est avec elles qu’il effectue la plupart de ses enregistrements (plus d’une centaine), maintes fois couronnés. Parmi ceux-ci citons les Passions et la Messe en si de Bach, la Messe en ut mineur et le Requiem de Mozart, Elias et Paulus de Mendelssohn, la Messe de Puccini, les Requiem de Brahms, Verdi, Fauré et Duruflé, des œuvres de Frank Martin et Arthur Honegger. Il a enregistré plusieurs messes de Haydn, et reçu un Orphée d’or » pour l’une d’elles

Il a enseigné la direction chorale au Conservatoire de Genève pendant plus de vingt-cinq ans.

La République française l’honore du titre de Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres. Il est fait Grand-Croix de l’Ordre de l’Infant Don Henrique par le Président de la République portugaise en 1999. Le Grand Prix de la Fondation Vaudoise lui est décerné en 1990 et le prix de la Ville de Lausanne en 2003.
