A Grand Rapids native, Scott Bosscher received a Master of Music in vocal performance from the Bass Opera School at Oklahoma City University, studying with Dr. Inez Silberg (Leona Mitchell, Chris Merritt, Kristin Chenoweth.) Subsequent teachers include vocal coach John Wustman (Luciano Pavarotti) and voice teacher Diane Forlano, with whom he studied alongside Anthony Rolf Johnson, John Mark Ainsley, Ian Bostridge, Kathrine Bott and James Bowman. Scott studied in Diane Forlano's studio for five years in Chicago and three more subsequent years in London.
In 1991, Scott took up a dual post at the Wells Cathedral Music School in Somerset, England, where he taught academic music and trained the boy and girl choristers at Wells Cathedral in weekly voice lessons. He also sang as a soloist and regular member of the Wells Cathedral Choir until his return to the States in 1995. Scott has been a soloist throughout Europe and South America performing with various orchestras, including the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the City of London Sinfonia (Richard Hickox), singing such roles as the tenor in Britten’s War Requiem and the Evangelist roles in Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions.
Scott maintains an active studio of voice students at GRCC as well as teaching classes in aural comprehension. In addition to his work for the college, Mr. Bosscher is also the Director of Music of the Grand Rapids Choir of Men and Boys.
