Lauded for a “a voice of seductive beauty” (Miami Herald) and as an “unfailingly versatile” performer (Boston Globe), baritone David McFerrin has won critical acclaim in a wide variety of musical styles. He is a mainstay of the Boston classical vocal scene and has performed on many other leading stages in the US and Europe.
David’s recent performances have included the role of Thoas in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride with Boston Baroque; Monteverdi’s dramatic scena Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda with American Bach Soloists; Bach’s St. John Passion and Christmas Oratorio with Emmanuel Music; concerts at the preeminent renaissance vocal festival Laus Polyphoniae in Antwerp, Belgium with the ensemble Blue Heron; and embodying the Devil in Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale at the Aston Magna Music Festival.
Highlighting the 2023-24 season, David is a featured soloist with the Handel and Hadyn Society and debuts at Bachfest Leipzig with Emmanuel Music. On the opera stage he sings the role of Masetto in Don Giovanni with Boston Baroque and completes Enigma Chamber Opera’s trilogy of Britten’s church parable operas with The Burning Fiery Furnace.
