British-Canadian baritone Alexander Dobson has been praised for his musical and dramatic artistry on both opera and concert stages. An ardent singer since childhood, Alexander’s solo début was at twelve years old, as a treble soloist in the Canadian premiere of Lloyd Webber’s Requiem under conductor Elmer Iseler. Since then, he has found success internationally – with performances with the Seattle Symphony, L’Opera de Montréal, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Symphony, Linbury Theatre in London, England, Warsaw Philharmonic and many others. He has sang and recorded for Airline Icarus and Prince of Players – two works that have been awarded a JUNO for Classical Composition of the Year (2015) and two GRAMMY nominations. He was lauded for his “gripping embodiment of Wozzeck” (Journal Voir) in a production of the Berg opera with Théâtre du Nouveau Monde and Orchestre Métropolitain, conducted by Yannick Nézet- Séguin.
As a teacher, Alexander has many years of experience when he is not performing. He is a warm and compassionate teacher who believes that everybody has a singing voice and is passionate about bringing that voice out from his students.
