Bio

In 1983 Bell was invited to the University of Calgary to teach voice and form an Opera Workshop. His previous position was at the University of Ottawa where he had first established a voice studio and later founded an Opera Workshop, which continues to the present.

Bell has a long history in the singing world, having established his international career with a Wigmore Hall recital and followed that with an operatic debut in Bayreuth Germany under the patronage of Wieland Wagner.

His career took him to 23 countries and included many international events, such as the opening of Lincoln Center under the baton of Leonard Bernstein, the American President John F, Kennedy's wife was in attendance; several royal appearances in London (UK) with the Queen Mother in attendance, and one in Cleveland Ohio, with Prince Charles attending, recordings with Joseph Krips, Leonard Bernstein, George Szell, etc. In later years he toured Australia and New Zealand with Sir Peter Maxwell Davis singing his "Mad King" composition across the continents.

Bell's teaching at the University of Calgary has included successful Opera Workshop productions, which united the departments of drama and music in a cooperative effort. (This was a first.) His researches include a vibrato onset study with Dr. Michael Dobrovolsky formerly of the Linguistics Department, and a voice MRI study with Dr. Richard Frayne of the Seaman Institute. Last year he received the Van L. Lawrence Fellowship from the Voice Foundation in Philadelphia for his technology in teaching voice.

This is Bell's fifth year on the Senate, having completed three years, and then with a year's interim, he rejoined as a community member/representative. He enjoys the challenges of promoting student's efforts to the Alberta community.
