Brian Pettey, baritone
Baritone Brian Pettey is a singer whose “charming” and “haunting” voice (Baltimore Sun, North Lake Travis Log) has garnered glowing reviews from critics across the country. Along with performances at the Peabody Conservatory, where he received his Bachelor’s degree in voice, he has sung roles with Baltimore’s Opera Vivente and Young Victorian Theater Company. In Austin, where he received his Master’s in voice at the University of Texas, he has appeared with the Butler Opera Center, the UT Chamber Singers, the UT New Music Ensemble, and the Bach Cantata Project.
Presenting concerts which promote and celebrate the repertoire, he is a passionate advocate of chamber music and art song—especially that of American poets and composers. A champion of contemporary music in particular, he has performed dozens of works by living composers, even incorporating dance, visual art, film, and radio. When not singing or playing, he enjoys working in his garden, word games, and even the occasional round of mini-golf.
