Enrico Lagasca, bass-baritone
Filipino-American bass-baritone Enrico Lagasca’s nascent career already comprises 16 oratorios, 17 new-music works, seven opera roles, 13 song cycles and collections and four Grammy Award-nominated recordings.
His 2022–2023 season is framed by Tyshawn Sorey’s Monochromatic Light (afterlight) directed by Peter Sellers at the Park Avenue Armory and the New York Philharmonic’s premiere of Julia Wolfe’s multi-media unEarth. This season he also sings Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass with Voices of Ascension, Handel's Messiah at Ann Arbor's University Musical Society and at Carnegie Hall with Musica Sacra, Bach's Christmas Oratorio at Washington Bach Consort, and Mendelssohn's Walpurgisnacht with the St. Louis Symphony, as well as Joby Talbot's Path of Miracles, and Craig Johnson's Considering Matthew Shepard.
