View Full Profile

Eugene Cline holds a Master of Arts in piano accompanying from the University of Kansas City where he studied with Jon Spong. While employed by the university as staff accompanist, he also worked with Kansas City Lyric Theatre as an assistant conductor. From 1969-83, Cline was on the faculty of Louisiana State University as an opera coach and faculty accompanist. During that time he served as the assistant conductor of New Orleans Opera, where he worked with luminaries of the opera world including Richard Tucker, Jerome Hines, Justino Diaz, Carol Neblett and Giorgio Tozzi. He also founded a resident chamber opera company in Baton Rouge, which provided a showcase for performances by students and faculty at the university in conjunction with singers from the local community.

In 1983, Cline moved to New York City where he opened a private studio. His clientele came to include such artists as Sherrill Milnes, Faith Esham, Donnie Ray Albert, Greer Grimsley and Joyce di Donato. As an accompanist, Cline has concertized nationally with artists from the New York City Opera, Metropolitan Opera and the opera companies in Düsseldorf, Munich and Milan. During the summers, Cline was, at various times, on the faculties of the International Institute of Vocal Arts, American Singers’ Opera Project and Rising Star Singers.

After 25 years in the private sector, Cline re-entered the academic world, moving to Moscow in 2008.
