Belton, Texas – On Tuesday, September 10, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor College of Visual and Performing Arts will open its 2019/20 season with a special performance by baritone David Pershall. The concert will be held in the Baugh Performance Hall of the Sue & Frank Mayborn Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m.
Opera News praised Pershall as a rising star. He has been celebrated around the world for his “passionate and resonant” (The New York Times) “cultured singing” (Der Neue Merker).
Pershall is a Temple native. As a child, he studied at the UMHB Conservatory of Music before attending Baylor University, where he earned his Bachelor of Music degree. He later earned an Artist Diploma and a Master of Music degree from the Yale School of Music. He also graduated from both San Francisco Opera’s Merola Program and the Virginia Opera Resident Artist Program.
Pershall was the baritone soloist in Carmina Burana with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, and in A Sea Symphony with the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra. His debut recital at San Francisco Opera was lauded as being “wonderful to witness” by the San Francisco Chronicle.
