About Iain Scott:
Iain Scott is perhaps one of Canada’s best-known and most popular opera educator and tour leader.
For 25 years, he was a regular and frequent guest on CBC radio’s “Saturday Afternoon at the Opera” and for 8 seasons, he was a guest panelist on the “Texaco Opera Quiz” from the Metropolitan in New York.
He now regularly teaches courses at the University of Toronto, York University, Ryerson University, George Brown College, Jewish Community Centres, etc. … and increasingly in private homes.
He is in constant demand as a lecturer for guilds, societies and opera companies across North America, including:
- the Smithsonian Institution
- the Chautauqua Institution
- Opera America and
- almost every Wagner Society in the US and Canada.
Before COVID, he organized a variety of Opera tours to European and North American opera houses each spring and fall … and hopefully will again …
