Evan L. Snyder
Evan completed his Bachelor’s in Vocal Performance at Michigan State University where he studied under the tutelage of Richard Fracker. During his time at MSU, he played in six MSU Opera Theater shows, including Frederic in The Pirates of Penzance and Henrik in A Little Night Music.
He was also an artist with the Seagle Music Colony, playing Action in West Side Story and Elder Hayes in Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah in the 2014 season, and then returning the following summer to sing in their Centennial Gala.
During the 2015-2016 season, Evan was excited to make his debut with Shreveport Opera, where he covered Don Remendado in their fall production of Carmen, then played Howard Boucher in their production of Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking.
Evan has a particular love of the works of Benjamin Britten. He has sung excerpts from many of Britten’s operas, including Albert Herring, Billy Budd, The Turn of the Screw, Gloriana, and The Rape of Lucretia, as well as singing many of Britten’s songs, including all of the Holy Sonnets of John Donne and many of the folk settings.
