As a concert singer, he has recently been heard in Handel’s Messiah and Saul, Saint-Saens‘s Oratorio de Noel and Bach’s St. Matthew Passion.

Notable productions during this time were Prokofiev’s Der feurige Engel, Shostakovich’s Die Nase, Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro, and Barrie Kosky’s highly celebrated productions of Berstein’s West Side Story, Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Schönberg’s Moses und Aron, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, Handel’s Semele, and Bock’s Anatevka. He is a graduate of the Institute of Sacred Music at Yale University, as well as Susquehanna University, with additional studies at Temple University. He was selected for vocal fellowships at both the Carmel and Oregon Bach Festivals.
