2009 GRAD BLAKE MORGAN
I've been singing with two Grammy-nominated choral ensembles. One is Conspirare, based in Austin Texas, and the other is the Choir of Trinity Wall Street Church in NYC, which many would argue is the best church choir in the US.
Also in NYC, I have been singing with Pomerium - a group specializing in music of the renaissance which the New York Times hails as "the standard by which early music groups are measured."
Late last summer, I was selected and performed as a soloist in the Madison Early Music Festival for thier Handel Aria Competition. Also in August, I performed with Yale's Norfolk Chamber Choir directed under Simon Carrington, the founder of the King's Singers.
I was twice selected by the Grammy-Award-Winning Men's ensemble Chanticleer to fly out to San Francisco and sing with the group in their final round of auditions for the upcoming season.
As a songwriter, I led a successful kickstarter campaign, raising almost $4,500, and am working on completing a CD of all original music about the Upper Peninsula of Michigan called 'Houghton-Hancock Hum-Alongs". The project was featued on Houghton's official city website and also in theMining Gazette, Houghton's newspaper.
I was featured on Revolt Television (Puff Daddy's TV station) playing guitar and singing with a pop artist from Detroit named Daniel Wilson. Signed under a UK based record label called Zap, Daniel and I have traveled to NYC to perform atGlasslands as the headlining act.
Finally, I have just accepted a position in Cantus, the full-time, professional men's group comprised of 9 singers from Minneapolis. Cantus is one of only two full-time choral groups in the US, the other being Chanticleer. I will move to the Twin Cities in June to begin rehearsals for a Baltic Cruise Tour to England, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland, and Sweeden with NPR's "A Prairie Home Companion" hosted by Garrison Keiller.
