This week we introduce Daniel Shirley, tenor, who appears on the PaTRAM Institute Singers’ GRAMMY-nominated recording of Kurt Sander’s “The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom” and on their “Blessed Art Thou among Women” CD. Daniel has performed as a soloist with opera companies and symphony orchestras across the United States and Europe. He serves as Assistant Professor of Vocal Studies at the ECU School of Music in Greenville, North Carolina, where he directs ECU Opera Theater. He and his wife Caitlin have three small children, and he says they have located Goldfish crackers in nearly every imaginable location in their home.


Please enjoy this wonderful audio clip of Daniel singing an excerpt from “Danksagung an den Bach (Die Schöne Müllerin, D795: no. 4”, by Franz Shubert and accompanied by Eric Stellrecht on piano.
