With a diverse repertoire of symphonic, chamber, and art music spanning ten centuries, baritone Edward Vogel is quickly being recognized as one of the most versatile concert singers today. His recent solo appearances have included Handel’s Messiah and Israel in Egypt and Monteverdi’s Vespro della beata Vergine with the Grammy Award–winning ensemble Apollo’s Fire led by Jeannette Sorrell, and Vaughan Williams’s Dona Nobis Pacem, Bach’s B-minor Mass, and Brahms’s A German Requiem with the Grammy-nominated True Concord Voices and Orchestra led by Eric Holtan. In 2019 Vogel made his international solo debut in J.S. Bach’s Mass in G major at Snape Maltings, United Kingdom, conducted by Philippe Herreweghe. Highly in-demand as an ensemble singer, Vogel has performed with groups including Bach Collegium Japan, Yale Choral Artists, and Paul Hillier’s Theatre of Voices in the world premiere of David Lang’s the writings at Carnegie Hall.
An avid recitalist, Vogel finds passion in delivering sensitive, intimate performances of both art song and genres that go beyond the traditional classical canon. A two-time vocal fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center, he has honed his craft by coaching with champions of art song, including Dawn Upshaw, Roger Vignoles, and the late Sanford Sylvan. His musical interests have led to engaging and acclaimed recitals of repertoire ranging from music of medieval Iberia to British art songs of the 20th century.
Edward Vogel received his master of music degree from the Yale School of Music, where he studied with tenor James Taylor. He also holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame, where he studied with baritone Stephen Lancaster.
