Baritone David Newman enjoys an active and varied concert career throughout North America. Hailed as “electrifying” by the Washington Post and noted by The Philadelphia Inquirer for his “eloquent, emotional singing,” he is in particular demand as a Baroque specialist. His recent Pilate in St. John Passion at the Bethlehem Bach Festival was also recorded for Analekta. He performs and records regularly with Opera Lafayette, including acclaimed productions of Monsigny’s Le Deserteur and Le Roi et Le Fermier, and Lalla Roukh by Felicien David. Mr. Newman teaches voice and music theory at James Madison University.
