Winner of the 1996 George London-Kirsten Flagstad Memorial Fund Award, the bass-baritone Jay Baylon has won critical acclaim for both operatic and concert appearances. His commanding vocalism and thoughtful musicianship allow him to pursue a broad repertoire, ranging from the cantatas of JS Bach to the music dramas of Richard Wagner. He is well known to opera and concert audiences throughout North America, and made his début with the Arizona Opera in 1998 in his first performances of Ramfis in Aida, and with the San Francisco Opera in 1997, where he was responsible for the title rôle in Der fliegende Holländer and took the rôle of Count Ceprano in Rigoletto. Audiences in Toronto saw him in his début with the Canadian Opera Company as Don Fernando in Fidelio, and he made his début with the Pittsburgh Opera in the 1996–97 season as Der Sprecher in Die Zauberflöte. Other concert appearances include Mozart’s Mass in C minor and Requiem, and Verdi’s Requiem. Jay Baylon is a native of Cleveland, Ohio, and received his degree in music from Youngstown State University. He was a 1996 finalist of the Annapolis Opera Vocal Competition and a 1996 Regional Finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.
