Daniel Fridley

Daniel Fridley, bass, is a doctoral student in the Case Western Reserve University Historical Performance Practice program, studying with Ellen Hargis and Aaron Sheehan. His “spotless, resonant bass” (Cleveland Classical) lends itself well to both early music and operatic performing. He obtained his Masters of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music, where he continues to take lessons with Dean Southern. This season, Fridley will sing with the Boston Early Music Festival for their chamber opera La liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola d’Alcina (Francesca Caccini) in November, perform the contrabass solo in Rautavaara’s Vigilia with the Chicago Chorale in March, and sing his first Coffee Cantata with Wyoming Baroque in May. Performance credits from recent seasons include Dottore Grenvil in Verdi’s La traviata (The Cleveland Opera); Dangerous Love, a concert of fiery 17th century Italian music (Newberry Consort); Jesus in both Arvo Pärt’s and J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion (Trinity Cathedral Cleveland and Atlanta Baroque); Leporello in Mozart’s Don Giovanni (La Musica Lirica), and Polyphemus in Handel’s Acis and Galatea (CWRU). This summer he was a Studio Artist with Central City Opera, and the previous summer he was a Young Artist with the Boston Early Music Festival.

POSTPONED: April Fundraiser

Dear Valued Patrons,
We regret to share that due to concerns relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone our April 19th fundraising event, Ecco la Primavera. We expect to reschedule this event for a weekend between July and September – stay posted! Please know this decision does not reduce the Newberry Consort’s need for your support. Indeed, now more than ever, we hope you will consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us not only minimize the losses from this postponement but also contribute to our future events.

If you currently hold a ticket for this event, refunds are available upon request. Otherwise, the cost of your ticket will be applied to the rescheduled event. If you are a current ticket-holder for this event, Consort General Manager Hannah De Priest will be in touch with you directly very soon.
