Alan McLellan

Host & Producer

Alan McLellan has been entertaining with his voice for many years, ever since discovering the joy of singing as a boy chorister in Vancouver, Canada. He has continued to sing in choirs throughout his life, and obtained a Master of Music degree in Choral Conducting at the University of Alberta, Canada. Alan currently sings with the Cantata Singers in Boston. He is also a vocal soloist, having appeared frequently at All Saints Parish in Brookline, Massachusetts, and with the Cantata Singers Chamber Series. Professionally, Alan has served as Classical Music Producer at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Ottawa and Edmonton, and at 99.5 WCRB in Boston. And more recently, Alan’s voice has been heard on WCRB as evening host, sharing great classical music with audiences in Boston and around the world.

Mayor Walsh has declared Nov. 3 to be David Hoose Day in the City of Boston. WCRB's Alan McLellan, who sings in Hoose’s ensemble, the Cantata Singers, explains what makes this conductor such an essential part of Boston’s cultural fabric.
