Founded by Wolf Trap Opera Alumni, this new vocal ensemble brings an operatic sensibility to choral music. Composed of members of the Metropolitan Opera and military choruses, The State Singers make their DC debut at The Barns!
Wolf Trap Opera has long been an artist-centered program, with strong alumni ties. We are thrilled to be able to introduce the Washington, D.C. area to The State Singers. Founded by two Wolf Trap alumni, Jeremy Little (’06,’07) and Dustin Lucas (Studio ’09), who have performed with The Metropolitan Opera for over a decade as choristers and in supporting solo roles, The State Singers invite you to experience the evolution of the choral ensemble.
Led by renowned choral conductor Michael McCarthy of The National Cathedral, The State Singers represent a strong love for the American choral tradition as well as the depth and breadth of sound, color, and dynamics that are possible when working with operatic voices.
The group is comprised of male singers from many backgrounds, including members of The Metropolitan Opera Chorus, the military choirs, as well as solo performers who enjoy singing choral music with their opera voice.
