ROB MCGINNESS

Baritone Rob McGinness has been praised by the Baltimore Sun for his “impressive singing . . . well-supported tone and supple phrasing.” This season Rob is looking forward to both his Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall solo debuts. His season will also include performances with New York’s PROTOTYPE Festival, the Maryland Symphony Orchestra, and Washington National Opera. Often featured portraying opera’s “bad boy,” Rob’s operatic credits include the title roles in Eugene Onegin and Don Giovanni, as well as Marcello in La bohème. He has also sung Enrico in Lucia, Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, and Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus, a performance lauded for a “bright baritone and winning jitteriness” by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. As a featured soloist, Rob has performed Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer, the Duruflé Requiem with the Peabody Symphony Orchestra, and the Brahms Requiem with Portsmouth Pro Musica. Other concert credits include Carmina Burana with Columbia Pro Cantare and Schubert’s Mass in G with Concert Artists of Baltimore, where Rob’s performance was lauded by the Baltimore Sun’s Tim Smith for its “poetic warmth.” Next season Rob is thrilled to be joining Marion Roose Pullin Arizona Opera Studio, performing multiple roles including Schaunard in La bohème and Harlekin in Ariadne auf Naxos.
