Gil Donohue


Conductor, composer, and baritone Gil Donohue is a Master of Music student in Choral Conducting at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Vocal Performance and Music Theory/Music History with honors at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.

At Notre Dame, Gil’s music was regularly performed by the Notre Dame Composers’ Consortium under the mentorship of composer John Liberatore, and received additional performances by the Notre Dame Liturgical Choir. A selection of his pieces were read in a composition workshop with soprano Jamie Jordan and New York Philharmonic percussionist Daniel Druckman, and he took lessons with visiting composers Sky Macklay and Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon. His Missa Brevis was selected for performance at LFCCM 2019, where it was performed by the choirs of St Pancras Church and Hampstead Parish Church.

As a baritone, Gil has participated in masterclasses with artists such as Graham Johnson, Nathan Gunn, Martin Katz, and J.J. Penna, and studied voice with Stephen Lancaster and Kyrsten Chambers Jones. He has also appeared as the bass soloist for various concerts at Notre Dame, including most recently Mozart’s Vesperae Solennes de Confessore. In Rochester he sings with Voices, a local professional choir under the direction of William Weinert. Gil currently serves as the Music Director and Organist at St Alban’s Catholic Church, a part of the Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter.
