Don your dapper duds and fancy frocks for this tribute to the Golden Era


Equally at home on Opera, Theater and Concert stages, John previously starred on Broadway as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera, Jean Valjean in Les Misérables, and Juan Peron in Evita.

John proudly made his Lyric Opera of Chicago debut as Curly in their production of Oklahoma! He most recently created the role of Dr. Woodly in the World Premiere of Happy Birthday Wanda June by Richard Auldon Clark for Indianapolis Opera with libretto by Indiana’s own Kurt Vonnegut.

In concert, John has sung as a featured classical tenor and Broadway Pops soloist with The Baltimore Symphony, The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, The North Carolina Symphony and The Detroit Symphony Orchestra all with guest conductor Stuart Chafetz.
