This promising young vocalist has already toured three continents in his blossoming career. He is a gifted concert performer singing many places throughout the United States and abroad and has toured throughout Italy, Ireland, Wales and England. He has been an invited performer with various programs and choirs, and was even given the opportunity to be a featured singer with the University of Louisville Cardinal Singers in 2004 at the World Choral Symposium in Kyoto, Japan. In 2005, he was honored with the Gina Skaggs Epifano award for gifted young vocalists at the National Association of Teachers of Singing regional competitions.
Most recently, he has performed with the 2008 Crested Butte Music Festival in Colorado in their production of Verdi's Falstaff. He was a critically proclaimed "blood curdling…downright creepy" Peter Quinnt in Eastman Opera Theater's production of Benjamin Britten's Turn of the Screw. He is also a great comical performer giving his humorous exploits to a new staged production of Bach's comical Coffee Cantata with Mercury Opera in Rochester, New York. Aaron continues to do work with the Mercury Opera and is excited to find new opportunities in the Kentuckiana area.
Aaron received his Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance from Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky and has received his Masters of Music from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. There he also received the rarely awarded, College/Community Music Teaching Certificate for promising young pedagogs. He is a native of Western Kentucky, born and raised in Owensboro and is excited to return to the area. Aaron comes to Louisville from Houghton, New York where he taught both course work and private voice at Houghton College's Greatbatch School of Music.
