Biography
Dashon Burton

Bass-baritone Dashon Burton has established a vibrant career in opera, recital, and with orchestra. He is a frequent guest with the major orchestras of the United States in key elements of his repertoire, including J.S. Bach’s passions and Mass in B minor, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Brahms’s A German Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, and Mozart’s Requiem.

Mr. Burton’s 2019–20 season began with returns to the Carmel Bach Festival and the Salzburg Festival. He sings in the world premiere of Caroline Shaw’s The Listeners (in a role written for him), with the Philharmonia Baroque led by Nicholas McGegan, and with Grant Llewellyn and the North Carolina Symphony, where Mr. Burton also sings Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. He sings Michael Tilson Thomas’s Rilke Songs with The Cleveland Orchestra, with which he appears regularly, led by the composer. He reunites with Mr. Tilson Thomas at the San Francisco Symphony in May 2020 and returns to the National Arts Centre Orchestra for Verdi’s Requiem. He sang Richard Strauss’s Salome at the Salzburg Festival, led by Franz Welser-Möst in a production by Romeo Castelluci. He appears in the Bay Area throughout 2019–20 for the second year of a multi-season stint as a San Francisco Performances resident artist.

Dashon Burton’s album Songs of Struggle and Redemption: We Shall Overcome was selected by The New York Times as one of the Best Classical Recordings of 2016. He is an original member of the groundbreaking vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, with which he won a Grammy for its recording of Caroline Shaw’s Pulitzer Prize–winning Partita for 8 Voices.
