Bass: Alexander Bowie, baritone: Bass

 

A recent graduate of the University of Toronto Voice Performance program, Alexander Bowie is a young Toronto-based baritone who has been featured in opera and concert across Ontario. Over the course of his undergraduate studies, Alexander regularly appeared with the University of Toronto Opera. His 2019 performance of the role of Dick McGann in Weill’s Street Scene was described as “beautifully sung and fabulously danced with plenty of flair” (Ludwig Van Toronto). In the summer of 2018, he performed the role of Don Alfonso in Long Reach Opera Workshop’s production of Cosí fan tutte.

On the concert stage, Alexander has performed as the bass soloist in several works including Fauré’s Requiem, Charpentier’s Messe des Morts, and Bach’s Cantata 79. A great supporter of Canadian composers and their works, Alexander has sung as the baritone soloist in Ronald Beckett’s These Are Thy Glorious Works and the Toronto premiere of Allan Bevan’s Last Light Above the World. In the fall, he will be appearing as the bass soloist in Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy alongside the Toronto Korean Canadian Choir and in Handel’s Messiah with Arcady Ensemble.

An alumnus of the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute of 2017, Alexander is thrilled to join the Tafelmusik Chamber Choir this season. When Alexander is not singing, you can find him in the basement of Knox College, where he works as a Recruitment Officer for the University of Toronto.
