Daniel Fridley, bass, moved to Boston after receiving his Doctorate of Musical Arts in 2021 from the Case Western Reserve University Historical Performance Practice program, where he studied with Ellen Hargis and Jesse Blumberg. He graduated in 2017 from the Cleveland Institute of Music with a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. His “spotless, resonant bass” (Cleveland Classical) lends itself well to both early music and opera. Performance credits from recent seasons include bass soloist in Monteverdi’s Vespro della Beata Vergine (Upper Valley Baroque), bass soloist in Handel’s Messiah (Bourbon Baroque), Basilio in Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia (Teatro Nuovo), Pretore in Rossini’s La gazza ladra (Teatro Nuovo), bass soloist in J.S. Bach’s Coffee Cantata (Wyoming Baroque), Dottore Grenvil in Verdi’s La Traviata (The Cleveland Opera), Jesus in J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion (Atlanta Baroque), and Polyphemus in Handel’s Acis and Galatea (CWRU). Fridley sings regularly with Boston Baroque, Culomba, the Newberry Consort, and other ensembles.
