Guy De Mey (150x150)

Guy de Mey received his first singing instruction from Stella Dalberg. In 1975 he won the first prize for singing in the Belgian competition Pro Civitate. With coaching by Erna Spoorenberg on the side, he pursued his studies of voice at the conservatories of Brussels and Amsterdam. Furthermore he specialised in the performance of oratorios with Peter Pears and of Monteverdi’s madrigals with Eric Tappy. He can boast an impressive track record of hundreds of concert and opera performances all over Europe, the U.S., Canada, Israel, and Japan, as well as more than fifty CDs. He is highly appreciated as a performer of baroque music and often sings the role of the evangelist in Bach’s passions, under the baton of conductors such as Ton Koopman, Jean-Claude Malgoire, Sigiswald Kuijken, René Jacobs, Jordi Savall, and Philippe Herreweghe. Guy de Mey is equally dedicated to the opera genre. He has been a prominent guest at the most renowned European opera houses. Guy de Mey is also a noted performer of the Lied.
