Allan Palacios Chan (allanpalacioschan.com) holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a Minor in Theater (magna cum laude) from George Mason University, a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and is currently pursuing his Doctorate of Musical Arts in Vocal Performance. A Corbett Foundation Young Artist with Cincinnati Opera for four consecutive seasons, he recently was a voice fellow at the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, California.
Allan will be the tenor soloist in SINS OF OLD AGE, the opening concert of MUSIC FOR ALL SEASONS AT HISTORIC PETERLOON on October 2, at 2 PM (www.musicforallseasonscincinnati.com) when he will be singing selections from the Bel Canto repertoire, including the tenor aria from Meyerbeer’s Les Huguenots and songs and ensembles by Rossini, Donizetti and Verdi.
The young Philippine-born tenor has appeared widely in Cincinnati and is most admired as a specialist in Baroque music. In a recent Seen and Heard-International review of his appearance with the Cincinnati Chamber Opera in Handel’s Ariodante, Allan was praised as “…admirable…a standout as Lurcanio, bringing musicality plus an attractive and flexible leggiero sound to his assignment.”
