Scott Metcalfe is musical and artistic director of Blue Heron, acclaimed by The Boston Globe as "one of the Boston music community's indispensables," and music director of New York City's Green Mountain Project (Jolle Greenleaf, artistic director), whose performances of Monteverdi's Vespers have been hailed by The New York Times as "quite simply terrific." Metcalfe has been invited to be guest director of TENET (New York), the Handel & Haydn Society (Boston), Emmanuel Music (Boston), the Tudor Choir and Seattle Baroque, Pacific Baroque Orchestra (Vancouver, BC), Quire Cleveland, and the Dryden Ensemble (Princeton, NJ), and Early Music America's Young Performers Festival Ensemble at the 2011 Boston Early Music Festival. Metcalfe also enjoys a career as a baroque violinist, playing with Les Délices (dir. Debra Nagy), L'Harmonie des Saisons (dir. Eric Milnes), and other ensembles. When not playing or directing, he is at work on a new edition of the songs of Gilles Binchois and teaches vocal ensemble repertoire and performance practice at Boston University, where he is co-director of the Center for Early Music Studies. Metcalfe received a bachelor's degree from Brown University, where he majored in biology, and a master's degree in historical performance practice from Harvard.
