David Grogan, baritone, has performed extensively throughout the Southwest to critical acclaim. The Dallas Morning News hailed Mr. Grogan as the “perfect Christus” after a performance of the St. Matthew Passion with the Dallas Bach Society. The Albuquerque Tribune, in reference to a performance of Messiah with the New Mexico Symphony, said, “David Grogan had all the range and power required of the part, sounding like the voice of doom in ‘The people that walked in darkness’ and the light of revelation in ‘The trumpet shall sound.’”
A recent performance of Elijah had critics praising his ability to “move easily from stentorian declamation to lyrical aria.” Another critic said that he “… brought an impressive vocal power to the lead role of Elijah, his rich emotive gift set the level for the other chief performers.” He has performed as a soloist with Dallas area arts groups including the Dallas Bach Society, Texas Baroque Ensemble, Orpheus Chamber Singers, Mesquite Civic Chorus, and the Allegro Artists, as well as several Texas universities. Other performances this spring include Jesus in the Saint John Passion with the Dallas Bach Society, the Fauré Requiem with the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the bass solos in the Saint John Passion in Arkansas.
