Mainstage roles have included Tamino in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni, Don Ramiro in Rossini’s La Cenerentola, Spoletta in Puccini’s Tosca, Reverend Parris in The Crucible, Gilbert in Donizetti’s Lucie de Lammermoor, Joe in Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West, Pastore in Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, and Rameau’s Pygmalion. A champion of contemporary music, he has been lauded for his cover of John Bocconion in Richard Rodney Bennett’s The Mines of Sulphur with Glimmerglass Opera as well as his portrayal of Nicholas in Tod Machover’s Death and the Powers previewed in Monte-Carlo with Opera Europa.

Formerly chair of vocal studies at Palm Beach Atlantic University, Grohman recently joined the music faculty of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC.
