McGill’s Schulich School of Music welcomes tenor John Mac Master to the Voice Faculty this fall, building on its remarkable faculty. In addition to performing, Mac Master has taught privately for the past twenty years, and since 2013 he was a member of the Don Wright Faculty of Music at Western University. He will begin his position as Assistant Professor in Vocal Studies at the Schulich School of Music in September, 2016.
“John Mac Master brings to the Schulich School of Music decades of experience on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, as well as deep commitment to the training of young singers. A brilliant, insightful and caring individual, he will enrich our community and be an inspiring addition to our already stellar voice faculty.” Stéphane Lemelin, Chair, Department of Performance
And John Mac Master says:
“I am thrilled to be returning to McGill where teachers like Jo-Anne Bentley, Jan Simons, Helmut Blume and so many others helped form and shape me as a singer and an artist. After many years of honing my craft and art with colleagues onstage, I am eager to help in shaping the next generations of performers that come through the Schulich School of Music. It is also a particular pleasure for me to be returning to Montréal where I have performed so often with Opéra de Montréal, the Orchestre Métropolitain and the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal.”
