Operatic baritone and concert recitalist Gregory Storkan was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico and raised in the nearby "atomic town" of Los Alamos. The son of a chiropractor and a Montessori school teacher, Mr. Storkan grew up with a uniquely diverse childhood driven by phase after phase of creative inclinations that, despite rarely including performing, consistently led him toward some form of music. After a half-hearted attempt at playing the piano, he eventually ended up in whole-hearted pursuit of a professional singing career and discovered his passion for opera after entering the vocal performance program at Northern Arizona University.
Praised for his "warm and regal voice," Mr. Storkan signed his first professional contract with Union Avenue Opera while still a graduate student in voice at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. From there he has forged a burgeoning career as a classical Lyric Baritone and has sung with opera companies across the country. Mr. Storkan also spent two seasons performing in the chorus of the seven-time Grammy-winning St. Louis Symphony and is a frequent recitalist, harboring a not-so-secret love of Kurt Weill, Jacques Brel, and other cabaret-style musical literature.
In the fall of 2013 Mr. Storkan relocated to Denver, Colorado, where he undertook a brief performing hiatus to pursue further training in voice, acting, business strategy, preparation skills, marketing, and personal development. He is excited by his re-emergence into the performing world, launched by his recent performances as Dulcamara in Mid-Ohio Opera’s L’Elisir d’Amore and Masetto in Boulder Opera’s Don Giovanni.
