It’s always exciting to discover new talent. And Countertenor, Mikah Meyer, was enthusiastically brought to my attention via one of my former students, the very talented, Kyle Scripnick. Mikah and Kyle happen to be colleagues at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec.
Why all the excitement, you may ask? Well, first, Mikah is excellent at this very specialized vocal craft and, more important, he lends a contemporary flavor to this unique vocal sound. Although the majority of men can vocalize to a certain extent in the mezzo soprano range, not everyone can do so with the extraordinary vocal gifts that Mikah has inherited and cultivated.
