Driven by a desire to explore and express the human experience through song, New York-based baritone Gregory Feldmann is a rising young artist on opera and recital stages alike. He is currently an Artist Diploma of Opera Studies candidate at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of Elizabeth Bishop. With Juilliard Opera, Feldmann will sing the role of the composer in Virgil Thomson's The Mother of Us All, a collaboration with Juilliard Opera and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in February 2020. He will also sing Marcello in Puccini's La bohème in Peter Jay Sharp Theatre, under Maestra Keri-Lynn Wilson and director Stephen Wadsworth. Feldmann sang the role of Masetto in Mozart's Don Giovanni in April 2019 under Maestro Joseph Colaneri.
A passionate recitalist, Feldmann and pianist Nathaniel LaNasa are recent winners of the 2019 Joy in Singing International Song Competition. Their finals program of "Forgotten Voices" highlighted music by Franz Schreker, Alexander Zemlinsky, and selections from the AIDS Quilt Songbook. The duo will present their debut recital in Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall next season. Feldmann also enjoys a partnership with pianist Steven Blier and the New York Festival of Song. In January 2018, Feldmann and Blier gave two world premieres of John Corigliano's song literature, performing the cycle Rhymes of the Irreverent and song no comet ever scratched the sky with NYFOS at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre.
In 2019, Feldmann returned to Opera Theatre of Saint Louis as a Gerdine Young Artist to cover Count Almaviva in The Marriage of Figaro, and Chester in the world premiere of Terrance Blanchard's Fire Shut Up in My Bones.
On the concert stage, Feldmann made his Carnegie Hall debut in November 2018 with MasterVoices, singing the Bass I solo in Handel's Israel in Egypt under Ted Sperling. He returned as a soloist in Handel's Messiah in December 2018 with Central Presbyterian Church on Park Avenue under Seth Ward. He hails from York, Pennsylvania.
