The streaming service Marquee TV has recruited the American bass-baritone Ryan McKinny to be Head of US Content Partnerships.

Marquee have just bought out Helio Arts, which Ryan founded.

His colleague Jamie Barton says: ‘Ryan McKinny brings a keen artistic eye and a huge heart to every project he works on, both onstage and behind the camera. He consistently uses his personal power to help elevate new voices in classical music, and I can’t wait to see the impact he will have on the incredible breadth of projects available on Marquee TV. I’m thrilled to see an artist of Ryan’s caliber take on a leadership role like this.’

    I know that Ryan McKinny has a great career going, especially in the Wagner rep. My first experience with him was……I don’t know how to say it…….he was completely voiceless at a Palm Beach Salome. Obviously there was no cover available, so he generously went on with the show, but it was distressing for him, I’m sure, and for the audience members who understood what was happening.

    Goodluck. I subscribe to Marquee – it’s got a great assortment of London orchestras. But they really need someone to get out and sell the service. Not enough people know about it.

    Excellent singer; would be a shame if this took up too much time away from his performances.

    The photo made me think this post was about a screaming service.
