Brian McCreath

Director of Production

Brian McCreath produces WCRB’s Boston Symphony Orchestra broadcasts, produces and hosts both The Bach Hour and The Answered Question (an interview podcast), and supervises digital content production for classicalwcrb.org. He came to WGBH from a diverse background in music. With degrees in trumpet performance from the New England Conservatory and The College of Wooster, he spent several years as a musician, including two years with the Symphony Orchestra of the State of Mexico and five years as Principal Trumpet of the Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra. Ideas about the business of music, combined with an entrepreneurial spirit, led him into artist management in 2000, and radio wasn’t far behind. He worked on the production team for the talk shows of Wisconsin Public Radio's Ideas Network in Milwaukee before moving to Boston in 2001. Three years later he joined the classical music production staff of WGBH. Since then, in addition to those noted previously, his roles have included programming and hosting weekend mornings and weekday afternoons, and production and hosting of live concert broadcasts presented by the Handel and Haydn Society, Rockport Music, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and others.
