I auditioned for the Classical Singer Magazine Vocal Competition earlier this month in Cleveland, OH held at the Cleveland Institute of Music (http://www.classicalsinger.com/convention/competition/winners.php) and I have been advanced to the second round in beautiful San Antonio, TX in late May (May 21-26). Unfortunately, winners are responsible for all of their travel and accommodation expenses, but this makes it possible for all of you to become a part of this opportunity as well!
I hope you are all as excited as I am about this next step in my career. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you as things progress.
The cost of the hotel for the convention is roughly $800, and roundtrip airfare is anywhere from $400-$700.
Shaun McGrath, baritone
Shaun McGrath (baritone) made his stage debut in the Portland Opera Chorus' production of Wagner's Der Fliegende Hollander in 2007. Since then, he has kindled a love of Wagner and was even invited to the Seattle Opera Chorus to perform the work again. While in Seattle, he sang in Verdi's Aida and also performed as a soloist under the baton of Marvin Hamlisch in Seattle Symphony's 2010 production of The Music Man. His most memorable time on stage in Seattle was in a performance of Star Wars in Concert directed by Dirk Brossé. Now residing in Cleveland, Ohio, Mr. McGrath performs regularly with local companies, ensembles, and composers premiering new works. His recent roles at Opera Circle have included Uscire in Verdi's Rigoletto, Dottore Grenvil in Verdi's La Traviata and he was recently seen on stage in Italy helping to pilot a new summer program, Lingua e Canto.
Please take a moment to progress a part of history in the making!
