Celebrated bass-baritone joins College of Fine Arts

The internationally acclaimed singer Simon Estes recently was appointed a faculty member of the College of Fine Arts, where he will have a studio at CFA’s school of music. Estes, who has performed with the world’s most famous opera companies and has a repertoire of almost 100 roles, will work with voice students and teach master classes in the areas of operatic training, performance, and management. “Simon Estes’ long and distinguished career will be of immense benefit to the school of music,” says André de Quadros, a CFA music professor and school of music director. “He is not only a remarkable musician and teacher but a great humanitarian who cannot fail to inspire the students in the school to great heights of artistry and achievement.”
