Michael St. Peter
A Chicago native based in New York City, Michael St. Peter is known for his “warm, beautiful and true” singing (Chicago Classical Review). His career began as a boy soprano, singing in children’s choruses and small roles with Chicago Opera Theatre and Lyric Opera of Chicago. His career as a classical tenor has led to performances on notable stages including Chicago’s Harris Theatre and Pritzker Pavilion, New York’s Carnegie and Alice Tully Halls, and Wigmore Hall in London. Michael has sung leading roles in productions for Tulsa Opera (Don Giovanni) and the Haymarket Opera Company (The Dragon of Wantley, Acis and Galatea). A former young artist with Opera Theatre of St. Louis, he took part in workshops of two critically acclaimed new operas that debuted there: Tobias Picker’s Awakenings and Terrance Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones. A lover of oratorio, Michael has appeared as a soloist with The Cecilia Chorus of New York (Handel’s Messiah), Hawai’i Symphony Orchestra (Mozart’s Requiem), and Chicago’s Music of the Baroque (Haydn’s Creation Mass).
