David John Walsh, Tenor 

Born to Perform

About

David Walsh, born and raised in Toronto, recently finished his Diploma of Opera Performance at the University of Toronto with Honours in 2022. 
 
From there David has participated in a wide range of vocal performances. A highlight of the upcoming 2023/24 season will be David performing as the Tenor Soloist for Chorus Niagara’s Messiah. This past summer, he debuted the role of the Governor/Vanderdendur in North York Concert Orchestra’s production of Candide, as well as El Remendado in No Strings Theatre’s production of Carmen. In the winter of 2023, David made his debut with the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra as Count Almaviva in a performance of The Barber of Seville. In fall 2022, David sang with the Canadian Opera Company Chorus in both Bizet’s Carmen and Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman and will be singing with them again in the Spring. He made his role debut as Martin in Aaron Copland’s opera The Tender Land in Spring 2022 with U of T Opera. A highlight of 2022 was when he was asked to perform as the Tenor soloist in Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana with Chorus Niagara and Robert Cooper. At U of T Opera in Fall 2021, he made his role debut as Count Almaviva in The Barber of Seville.
 
As well as an avid singer, David is an avid biker. This form of transportation is the way he practices a lot of his repertoire. So, if you ever see a blur of red hair and hear some Rossini or Fauré on the downtown streets of Toronto, you have most likely encountered David Walsh.
