Zachary Angus is a lyric baritone who has appeared throughout the United States and internationally. He is currently serving as an Emerging Artist with Fort Wayne Philharmonic, where he can be seen in concert, recital, and outreach performances. Mr. Angus' close ties to new music in Chicago has led Francis Lynch to choose him to create the eponymous role in the composer’s first opera, Joseph’s Gift. He was praised by Chicago Theater Review for his “earnest and spinning instrument” in this role. In recent seasons, he has been featured in a number of operatic productions; as Guglielmo (Così fan tutte, Tuscia Opera Festival, Viterbo, Italy), Alfio (Cavalleria Rusticana, Main Street Opera), Archbishop Seijas (With Blood, With Ink, Third Eye Theatre Ensemble), Friedrich Bhaer (Little Women, Eugene Opera), Marco (Gianni Schicchi, Salt Creek Chamber Orchestra), Bartley (Riders to the Sea, SCCO), Belcore (L’elisir d’amore, SCCO), Claudio (Béatrice et Bénédict, Eugene Opera), Captain Corcoran (H.M.S. Pinafore, The Savoyaires of Evanston), Pangloss/Cacambo/Martin (Candide, Opera Notre Dame), and Marcello (scenes from La Bohème, Visiting Artist at North Park University).
