Dr. Marc Weagraff has a firmly established reputation as a teacher of excellence. His students have performed with national and international opera programs, in leading roles on Broadway, in numerous national tours, on national television and have been accepted to top-tier graduate programs in voice. Weagraff studied voice with Lorna Haywood and George Vassos and choral conducting under Theo Morrison. His opera credits include roles with The Utah Opera Company, Lyric Opera Cleveland, Cleveland Concert Opera, Michigan Opera Works, The University of Michigan, The University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society, and the Cleveland Institute of Music as well as numerous performances in musical theater programs. Several of his performances have been broadcast over WCLV (Cleveland) and KBYU (Provo, UT) radio. Equally at home with oratorio repertoire, he has performed as soloist with the internationally renowned University of Michigan Men's Glee Club, the Utah Symphony educational series, Master Singers, Inc. and many regional choral organizations. He has been heard in recital throughout the region including various academic, church-sponsored and social concert series venues. Before coming to BW, Weagraff was the director of music ministries at St. Noel Church in Willoughby Hills, OH. His choirs have performed in Rome and Assisi, Italy including the worldwide telecast of the 2007 New Year’s Day Papal Mass at which Pope Benedict XVI was the presider and in concert at San Ignazio Church. They also performed throughout the greater Cleveland area including at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist and the regional National Association of Pastoral Musicians convention in July 2008. Weagraff maintains private voice studios in New York and Cleveland and has become a sought-after choral and liturgical clinician.
