Full bio here:

I BEGAN the season in the role of Nicandro in ''Nicandro e Fileno'', by Paolo Lorenzani (1640-1713), in a very successful revival by Le Nouvel Opéra in Montreal, also recording the same for the label, ATMA Classique.

I then performed Haydn’s, Creation, at the Mondavi Arts Center at the University of California, with Jeffrey Thomas, and I am very excited to be singing several Monteverdi Vespers concerts with this same Maestro’s renowned San Francisco group, the American Bach Soloists, this April.

I am very proud to be part of Le Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montreal, which performs music of Nouvelle France at St. John's Smith Square, London, early in 2018.

Also on the books are 7 performances as soloist in Mozart's Requiem for Eifman Ballet St. Petersburg/Grands Ballets Canadiens, and with the Toronto Bach Festival, the Schutz ,St. John Passion, paired with Bach cantatas.

Summer activities include the role of Pleasure in Handel’s “The Triumph of Time and Truth” (Music and Beyond, Ottawa), and a tour of Lamentations of Jeremiah, by Tallis, with SMAM.

I am a studio rat, and a busy 2017 in the recording studio brings two important releases in 2018 featuring operatic as well as sea-shanty work: "Omega 20-21", Thierry Aolx's spectacular anthropocene feature film, and a major video game release by Ivine CA’s, Obsidian Entertainment, Pillars of Eternity II.

I’ve negotiated Youtube rights for my work with Obsidian, (sea shanties), and this expected heavy traffic will launch in a major way,my new channel for historical popular song.

And on that note, the major news for 2018-19 is that I’ve won a spot in the inaugural "Concerts Intimes" series of the Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montreal: I will finally have the resources to produce my 20-song set of the best selections from the hundreds popular songs of "The Scots Musical Museum", an important survey done in 1787.
