Bass-Baritone Carl Dupont is a vocalist equally engaged in performing, teaching, and research. He made his first operatic appearance as a boy soprano in the title role of Amahl and the Night Visitors in his hometown of Daytona Beach, FL, and has been singing ever since. Lately, he has been celebrated for his “dramatic, dark tones” (South Florida Classical Review) on stage as Leporello in Don Giovanni, the title character in Dennis Rodman in North Korea, and Jim in Porgy and Bess at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. He has performed as a soloist with the Rochester Oratorio Society, Southwest Florida Symphony, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. However, the intimacy of the solo recital is his preferred métier, and sharing the wealth of songs by black composers, a particular passion.

He began this season with recitals at the U. of North Carolina and U. of Miami with pianist Alan Johnson. He performs on tour with American Spiritual Ensemble from Jan. 30 to Feb. 19.  He perform Bach's Cantata #140 Wachet Auf with the Carolina Pro Musica at Central Piedmont  Community College on Feb. 23 and 25.  On March 24 he sings a recital in Newton NC.  On April 1 and 2 he performs the St. John Passion with Carolina Voices.  This summer he will join Glimmerglass Opera.
