Brandon Cedel, bass-baritone

In mid-2016, when he completed his third year of the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, bass-baritone Brandon Cedel relocated to Frankfurt, Germany as a member of Oper Frankfurt. The performing experience he is gaining through his Fest position in the opera company will take him one step closer to his long-term goals.  He graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music (Bachelor of Music in 2010, Master of Music in 2013), won Grand Prize at the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions (2013), and received a Richard Tucker Career Grant (2015), the Sullivan Award (2013), George London Award (2012), and Grand Prize in the Gerda Lissner Vocal Competition (2011).  Brandon is using his Fellowship funds for lessons, coaching, German Language study, travel and other costs associated with European auditions, materials (scores, recordings, DVDs, librettos).  In 2016, he debuted at Carnegie Hall with the New York Choral Society.
