Adam Ewing (Baritone)

Born: Hiawatha, Kansas, USA

The American lyric baritone, Adam Ewing, obtained his Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Northwest Missouri State University; and his Master of Music degree from Indiana University in Bloomington. He is is pursuing a doctorate of musical arts degree at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where he studies with Patrick Mason (as of 2014). In summer 2013, he was one of six singers chosen for the Fall Island Vocal Arts Seminar where he studied with Stephanie Blythe and Alan Smith. He also spent a month in Canada as a student at the Vancouver International Song Institute, an intensive summer program for singers and pianists focusing on art song, particularly French repertoire and the songs of Franz Schubert. He has sung in master-classes and recitals for Roger Vignoles, William Bolcom, Lori Laitman, Jake Heggie, Bob Spillman, and Libby Larsen.

Adam Ewing has appeared as Sondheim in Side by Side by Sondheim, John Brooke in Little Women, Gianni Schicchi, the Count (cover) in W.A. Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro, Man 2 in Songs for a New World, Miles Gloriosus in A Funny Thing…Forum, and Schroeder in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, among others. He also performs with Central City Opera’s Education and Community Engagement ensemble. Perhaps his most fitting role, both vocally and dramatically, was the Celebrant in the Colorado University Opera Theater production of Leonard Bernstein's Mass; interestingly, he was the only Catholic in the cast. He has also appeared in George Frideric Handel's Susannah, La Traviata, A Love for Three Oranges, The Tales of Hoffmann, and the collegiate premiere of The Light in the Piazza.

Adam Ewing is a frequent performer along the Front Range, singing with the Boulder Bach Festival and the Denver Early Music Consort. He was a founding member of the choral groups An die Musik and Vox Reflexa, and a past member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, a national men’s music fraternity, as well as singing with Indiana University Pro Arte Singers, groups dedicated primarily to early and 20th century music. An avid recitalist and performer of art song, he erformed the orchestrated version of Gustav Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen in 2009. He enjoys singing contemporary American art song as well, working with both student composers and celebrated masters.

In addition to singing, Adam Ewing is accompanying and teaching voice. He is a past member of the Missouri Music Educators National Conference, and the Indiana University student chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing. He is a part of Central City Opera’s Community Education and Enrichment programs, where he helps to introduce students across the Denver-Metro area to opera and orchestra music.He currently lives in Boulder, Colorado..
