Bass-Baritone Christopher Talbot is a sought-after soloist and ensemble singer specializing in renaissance, baroque, and 21st-century repertoire. Hailed for his “voice of warmth and strength” (Classical Review), Talbot recently appeared at the Internationale Bachakademie in Stuttgart, the finals of the 2021 Bethlehem Bach Aria Competition, in Handel’s Messiah with Seraphic Fire, and Haydn’s Creation with Dartmouth College. Highlights of his 2023 season include stints with The Crossing, The Thirteen, Apollo’s Fire, True Concord, and a coveted spot in the Carmel Bach Festival’s Virginia Best Adams Masterclass. Based in Philadelphia, he is a graduate of Yale’s Institute of Sacred Music, where he studied with James Taylor and Bernarda Fink. A champion of performing lesser-known works, he is also involved with New Muses Project, a non-profit founded at Yale dedicated to performing music by under-represented composers.
