John Greer

Orchestral Repertoire

John Greer

John Greer received his Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Manitoba and his Master of Music degree from the University of Southern California. He has taught at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester. He is primarily a composer for voice, and is well known worldwide for his numerous vocal and choral works including his enormously successful children's opera The Snow Queen. Along with a large repertoire of compositions and arrangements based on folk material, commissions and performances of his highly entertaining song cycles (ordinarily with the composer himself at the piano) have come from some of Canada's finest musicians, including Greta Kraus, Rosemarie Landry, Kevin McMillan and Monica Whicher. John is an active vocal coach, accompanist, conductor, arranger and composer and is heard in these capacities throughout Canada and abroad.
