Album Notes
**A voice the Ottawa Citizen has called "golden"

Cape Breton Island tenor Peter Gillis has performed throughout Canada, the US and abroad, including debuts at Carnegie Hall with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the Kennedy Center with the Washington Opera, and regular engagements at Italy’s Festival dei due Mondi. He has appeared in many of North America’s most prestigious venues, with such notable artists as soprano Renee Fleming and actress/comedienne Anne Meara.

Canadian performances, both Celtic and classical, have included a national tour of Canada with folk luminary Rita MacNeil, concerts with Symphony Nova Scotia, the Celtic Colours International Festival, and a debut with Opera Nova Scotia, singing the leading role in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress. He has also collaborated with fellow Cape Bretoners the Barra MacNeils and comedienne Bette MacDonald.

Of his Celtic cross-over CD Cape Breton Tenor, the Halifax Chronicle Herald wrote:
“A superbly modulated voice, healthy and well-trained… superior vocal armament.”
