Bass-Baritone Christopher Talbot is a sought-after soloist and ensemble singer specializing in renaissance, baroque, and 21st-century repertoire. Appearances during the 2021-2022 season include a vocal fellowship with Bach Akademie Charlotte, the finals of the 2021 Bethlehem Bach Aria Competition, and Handel’s Messiah with Apollo’s Fire and the New York Philharmonic. Christopher recently received his M.M. from the Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music, where his teachers included tenor James Taylor, mezzo-soprano Bernarda Fink, and harpsichordist Jeffrey Grossman. Highlights of his time at Yale include Telemann’s Der Tag des Gerichts at Alice Tully Hall with Masaaki Suzuki and Julliard415 (where he was hailed by Parterre Box for his “suave baritone”) and Schoenberg’s Friede auf Erden with the Danish National Vocal Ensemble under conductor Marcus Creed. He earned a dual degree in Music and Spanish from Drew University, and studied opera, early music, and composition for a term at IUNA, a national conservatory in Buenos Aires. Prior to Yale, Christopher lived in Boston where he appeared as a soloist and ensemble singer with the Harvard University Choir, Boston Choral Ensemble, Canto Armonico, and Carduus. A native of Worcester, MA, he began singing as a treble in the choirs of All Saints Church.
