Marc Verter combines solo work with performing chamber music, directing opera and teaching, and is a passionate advocate of song. For over five years, he was the artistic director of the Chelsea Schubert Festival. Verter is also a vocal coach and répétiteur, and is on the staff of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and the Royal College of Music.
A consummate performer, he has given song recitals that have been broadcast live on radio in Israel, Belgium and the Netherlands. He has worked with singers such as Nelly Miricioiu, Jonathan Lemalu, Elena Xanthoudakis and Chen Reiss, and his first album with Russian soprano Ilona Domnich was released in December 2009 on the Quartz label.
As part of his dedication to art song, Verter has researched specific areas of the genre, particularly late 19th-century French song, focusing on the musical settings of the poetry of Charles Baudelaire and leading performance workshops. Verter also founded Salon Musical, a show which recreates Parisian salons of the 19th century through theatre and music, with performances taking place in venues such as the National Portrait Gallery, the Chelsea Arts Club and the Frome Festival. Verter has performed at festivals in Israel, North America and Europe, and each summer directs opera scenes at the AIMS International Music School. He is also a regular adjudicator at song competitions in London.
Verter was born and raised in Israel. He studied at Tel Aviv University; the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
