Stephan MacLeod

Stephan MacLeod is a conductor and bass-baritone. Born in Geneva, he is the founder and artistic director of Gli Angeli Genève, a vocal-instrumental ensemble that specialises in repertoire from the 16th to the 19th century on period instruments. He conducts between 40 and 50 concerts per year worldwide, a growing number of which as guest conductor with “modern” orchestras, particularly in the repertoire by J.S. Bach and his contemporaries.

Stephan MacLeod studied the violin and the piano before turning to singing. His singing career began during his studies in Germany through a fruitful collaboration with Reinhard Goebel and Musica Antiqua Köln. It was then that the doors to the oratorio world opened to him. Since 2005 and in parallel with his singing career, he has also devoted himself to conducting and his discography as a singer and conductor includes more than 100 CDs, many of them critically acclaimed. Since 2013, he has been a singing teacher at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne and shares his career between teaching, his commitments as a singer, his ensemble, and the increasing demand for him as a conductor.
