Sean's Resume

I am a graduate of the Opera program at the University of Toronto. I have sung from coast to coast with companies across Canada, including Vancouver Opera, Opera Hamilton, and Opera Lyra. My operatic roles include The Bonze in Madama Butterfly, Frank in Die Fledermaus, Masetto in Don Giovanni, the Father in Charpentier's Louise, Dr. Bartolo in The Barber of Seville, and Osmin in The Abduction From The Seraglio. I have also appeared with Opera in Concert in such diverse roles as Juanillo in El Gato Montes, Lord Guglielmo Cecil in Donizetti's Maria Stuarda, and Argante in Handel's Rinaldo - the latter of which was recorded for the Naxos label.

I have performed numerous times with the Toronto Operetta Theatre in such roles as Baron Zeta in The Merry Widow, Prince Ypsheim in Wiener Blut, and in the title role of The Mikado to rave reviews.

As an oratorio singer, I am a keen interpreter of Bach and Handel, and have performed their works with such well-known groups as the Kitchener-Waterloo Philharmonic, Ottawa Choral Society, Kingston Symphony, Elora Festival Singers, Early Music Vancouver, Chorus Niagara, Symphony Nova Scotia, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, as well as the Charlotte Symphony in North Carolina. I was also the bass soloist in the Aradia Ensemble's recording of Israel in Egypt on the Naxos label.

Internationally, I have been a featured oratorio soloist in the Czech Republic, Germany, England, Israel, and the United States. I have also been engaged by many European opera houses, including L'Opera d'Avignon in France, Teatro di Livorno in Italy, and Zurich Opera in Switzerland.

Recent engagements included Handel’s Messiah with the Bach Elgar Choir, under the baton of Maestro Howard Dyck.

Aside from my musical interests, I am also an avid photographer and entrepreneur.

Super prof. Sean a vite identifié et compris les points sur lesquels il fallait se concentrer.
J'ai pris contact avec Sean lors d'un séjour au Canada où j'avais besoin de vite améliorer mon anglais. Sean m'avait suggèré des methodes pour améliorer la compréhension orale et nous avions beaucoup travaillé la prononciation pendant les cours.
Aussi, nous avions travaillé ensemble sur des présentations pour des réunions et il m'avait préparer à passer des entretiens.
Un grand merci à Sean

Teacher Sean is a great person and teacher. He tailors his teaching accordingly at what I need and what I want to learn. I've been taking classes with him for a while, and people around me have told me that my English has improved a lot since I started my lessons.
Additionally, Sean is an interesting person and knows about a lot of topics so I really enjoy our lessons and conversations.
I still need to learn a lot in order to improve my English, and definitely, he is the best person to learn from.
Thank you, teacher!!!!!
