Baritone Patrick Graham, a Kansas City, Missouri native, has been praised for his “vocal strength” and “beautiful tone.” He has sung with KC VITAS, the Ad Astra Music Festival, Seagle Music Colony, Eastman Opera Theater, Eastman Collegium Musicum (under the direction of Paul O’Dette), the Rochester Fringe Festival, and the University of Missouri Opera. A proponent of new music, Patrick recently premiered “Advertisements,” a song cycle for baritone and guitar by Kian Ravaei, in a live-stream concert with KC VITAS. His concert work includes Bach’s St. John Passion, Haydn’s The Seasons, and Liszt’s Missa Solemnis. In 2019, he was awarded the Una Creditor Encouragement Award at the Kansas City District Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, and in 2016 he won his division of the NATS National Student Auditions. Patrick is a proud graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Missouri – Columbia.
