Ian Bannerman attended The University of British Columbia, studying voice performance under Roelof Oostwoud and J. Patrick Raftery. Ian’s interest in choral music sparked at a young age encouraged by his mother, an elementary school music teacher. His choral experiences in his home town of London, Ontario include serving as Assistant Artistic Director for Conspirato Chamber Singers, headlining for the Daejon Choral Festival in South Korea with Six Vocal Ensemble and Vocado, and nearly a decade singing with the Amabile Boys and Men’s Choirs.
At UBC, Ian performed with the University Singers, UBC Chamber Choir, and UBC Men’s Choir. While living in Vancouver for the past four years, Ian has worked with various ensembles including musica intima, Phoenix Chamber Choir and the Vancouver Cantata Singers. Ian is very excited for his first season with the Vancouver Chamber Choir!
