Neil Mackie

The tenor Neil Mackie enjoyed an international career spanning over 45 years. Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, he won a foundation scholarship for postgraduate studies in London. A substantial Gulbenkian Fellowship enabled him to study in Munich with the Swiss tenor, Ernst Häfliger, but the greatest influence on his career was undoubtedly the legendary English tenor, Sir Peter Pears. Neil Mackie has sung at most of the major venues throughout the world with many of today’s foremost conductors and orchestras in a wide-ranging repertory. In 1977 he appeared in the title rôle in the première of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s The Martyrdom of St Magnus which led to a fruitful collaboration with the composer over a twenty-year period. Neil Mackie has also appeared in the premières of countless works by Scottish composers as well as many notable first performances of Benjamin Britten, Kenneth Leighton and Hans Werner Henze. In 1995 Neil Mackie was appointed head of vocal studies at the Benjamin Britten International Opera School in London. He resigned from this rôle in 2006 and the same year retired from the concert platform. He was immediately appointed to the professorial staff at the Royal Academy of Music in London and currently holds a professorship at the University of Agder in Southern Norway.
