David John Walsh, Tenor
Born to Perform
David Walsh, a native of 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. In the winter of 2023, David will be making his debut with the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra 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.
The Flying Dutchman, Wagner
and Carmen, Bizet
David was so happy to start his time as a chorus member of the Canadian Opera Company singing in both of these amazing shows!
The Tender Land, Copland
At the University of Toronto Opera School, where David just finished his diploma, he was cast as Martin in Aaron Copland's The Tender Land, under the baton of Sandra Horst and working with the wonderful director Tim Albery!
Carmina Burana, Orff
In the spring of 2022, David was very lucky to be asked to be the Tenor Soloist in Carl Orff's Carmina Burana with Chorus Niagara led by Robert Cooper at the First Performing Arts Centre in St. Catherine's.
In the winter of 2021, David performed as the Tenor Soloist in Handel's Messiah with the Peterborough Singers, with many other esteemed soloists.
