Mr. Ethan DePuy
Praised for his “masterful acting” and “fine singing,” American tenor Ethan DePuy brings his unique dramatic style to works ranging from the Baroque era to now. Highlights of the 2015-16 season included his first performances of the Evangelist in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, the world premiere of James Kallembach’s oratorio The Most Sacred Body of Jesus, and his debut with Odyssey Opera and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project as Gardner in Gunther Schuller’s The Fisherman and His Wife.
Equally accomplished in the worlds of opera and oratorio, DePuy trained as a young artist at the Chautauqua Opera Company, where he was a recipient of the Young Artist Encouragement Award. His list of operatic credits includes Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore, Peter Quint in The Turn of the Screw, Alfred in Die Fledermaus, the title role in Albert Herring, and Chevalier de la Force in Dialogues of the Carmelites.
He has refined his craft as a concert soloist through his work with Music at Marsh Chapel, where his solo performances have included Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and Easter Oratorio, Rachmaninoff’s All Night Vigil, Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri, and numerous sacred cantatas of Bach. A native of Rochester, NY, Ethan earned degrees in voice and opera performance from SUNY Fredonia and Arizona State University.
