Pianist Cameron Stowe is a leading specialist in the study and performance of song recital repertoire. He has appeared in concert venues and music festivals in the Far East, Europe, South America, and throughout the United States and Canada, playing with some of the most prominent singers of his generation, including Randall Scarlata, Denyce Graves, Measha Brueggergosman, Susan Graham, Danielle DeNiese, Faith Esham, Vinson Cole, Sari Gruber, and Jesse Blumberg.

Since 2008, Stowe has served as Chair of the Collaborative Piano department at New England Conservatory and as faculty at The Juilliard School. Formerly a professor at University of Toronto, his festival teaching includes residencies at Aspen Music Festival and School, Toronto Summer Music Festival, and Vancouver International Song Institute, and he has given masterclasses for singers and pianists in the United States and abroad.

Recent educational projects include the creation of the innovative Song Lab at NEC and extensive work with musicologist Benjamin Binder, with whom he has designed song workshops and summer courses for performers, musicologists, theorists, and literary scholars. Together, they led the Scholarship in Song Performance summer festival at University of British Columbia for four years, assembling students and professionals, including Susan Youens, Jane Brown, Richard Kramer, Michael Musgrave, Graham Johnson, Thomas Allen, Ann Murray, and Margo Garrett, to encourage cross-disciplinary approaches in the study of song. In addition, Stowe served as keynote speaker and artist-teacher at the first Chinese National Conference on Collaborative Piano.

Stowe holds a doctorate from Juilliard with a specialized focus in song and vocal chamber music, as well as degrees from Peabody Conservatory and Oberlin College Conservatory.
