Singer

Stephan MacLeod studied the violin and the piano in Geneva before devoting himself to singing, in Geneva, then in Cologne with Kurt Moll and finally in Lausanne with Gary Magby. His singing career began during his studies in Germany through a fruitful collaboration with Reinhard Goebel and Musica Antiqua Köln.

Since 2005, he has also devoted himself to directing and founding the Ensemble Gli Angeli Geneva.

Since 2013 he has been a singing teacher at the Haute École de Musique de Lausanne and divides his career between his commitments as a singer, his ensemble, teaching, and invitations to conduct more and more frequent. He regularly conducts the Orchester de la Suisse Romande, the Zuidnederland Philharmonic (Eindhoven and Maastricht) and the Nederlandse Bachvereniging.
