Daniel Webb: Tenor

 

British tenor Daniel Webb read Music at Cambridge University, where he was Organ Scholar of Magdalene College and the John Stewart of Rannoch Scholar in Sacred Music, and later qualified as a barrister, briefly specializing in antitrust issues surrounding the soft-alloy aluminum extrusion market. Since moving to the great city of Toronto in 2013 at the behest of his Canadian wife, he has established a busy and diverse professional life as a teacher, choral conductor, organist, and singer. Now in his fourth season with Tafelmusik, Daniel was appointed Director of Music at St Clement’s, Eglinton in 2015 and, from September 2017, he will be a member of the Faculty of Upper Canada College. He is also an Examiner for the Royal Conservatory and a piano and theory teacher at the Toronto School for Strings and Piano. In his rapidly diminishing free time, he likes to spend time with his wife Trilby, his daughter Clea (and her hamster Tommasina) and his cat Doris, as well as living vicariously through the Toronto Blue Jays. He has two sub-four-hour marathons to his name and you should pretend that this is impressive if you discuss it with him.
