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.
