A dual US/Canadian citizen, Bowman has a long history of performing in Canada, with appearances with RCM’s flagship ARC Ensemble, Amici Chamber Ensemble, and the Art Of Time Ensemble.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, he is currently the concertmaster of the American Ballet Theatre Orchestra in New York, a role he has held since 2014.

The Metropolitan Opera’s 2017-18 season opens September 25 under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin with Bellini’s Norma.
