Rob Viens, Piano – Rob’s work as a performer, conductor, voice teacher, adjudicator, director, and clinician has been featured locally at Mount Baker Theatre, Opera Popolare, WWU Summer Stock, Bellingham Theatre Guild, and the Bellingham, Lynden, and San Juan Music Educators’ festivals.
Ensemble Enterprises Music Studio, now in its 30th year in Whatcom County, was recognized as the “Best in Bellingham” Music Studio in 2019 and 2020, achieving the organization’s hall of fame status. Rob is also the founder and artistic director of “Vocal Pyro!,’ a high-energy small vocal ensemble that performs excerpts from opera, operetta, and musicals. He serves the same role with the Bellingham Community Chorus, a large non-audition ensemble. In 2019, he debuted “Summer Voices,” a highly successful program for singers of all abilities, to foster healthy vocal technique and provide an opportunity for singers to sing in an ensemble when most choruses are on summer hiatus. Rob’s in-person and online studio specializes in building strong, healthy, flexible, and vibrant voices and ensembles. His high school singers earn top ranking in regional and state-level contests. Many singers “find” not only their voice but new career and performance opportunities, no matter what age or level they begin to study. Through years of personal and professional experience, he’s also developed a specialty of vocal rehabilitation and longevity, enabling people to find or recover their voice—whether they’re ten or 100+. Spanning a wide range of ages and styles, his singers are in demand in the classical, pop/rock, and musical theatre worlds.
