Already a distinguished opera singer and recitalist, Truman alumnus Dominic Armstrong (’02) is returning to his roots with his on campus performance of Johannnes Brahms’ “Romanzen aus Tiecks Magelone” (“Ballads from Tieck’s Magelone”). The recital is at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28 in the Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall. The recital will also feature Nancy Hueber, pianist and Adam Davis, narrator. Admission is free.

A native of Kirksville, Armstrong received his Bachelor of Music in vocal performance from Truman State University. While at Truman, Armstrong was an active performer, twice winning the Gold Medal Concerto/Aria competition. He performed such roles as Seymour in “Little Shop of Horrors,” the Padre in “Man of LaMancha,” Agwe in “Once on this Island” and L’Amante in “Amelia al ballo.”

Upon graduating from Truman, Armstrong attended the Juilliard School, where he received his Master of Music in vocal performance. He performed several recitals and opera roles at the Juilliard School, including Dr. Eisenstein in “Die Fledermaus,” and Ivan in Richard Wargo’s “The Music Shop.”

Armstrong is currently pursuing a second Master of Music degree in opera at the Curtis Institute of Music, studying with Marlena Kleinman Malas.
At the Curtis Institute of Music, Armstrong has appeared as Tamino in “Die Zauberflote,” Brighella in “Ariadne auf Naxos,” the fisherman in “Le Rossignol” and the Mayor in “Albert Herring.” He will also appear in “L’Ormindo,” “La Rondine” and “Postcards from Morocco.”

This past summer, Armstrong sang with the Opera Theatre of St. Louis as a Gerdine Young Artist, and sang for the second season with Chautauqua Opera where he appeared as Alfredo in “La Traviata” and won the SAI Vocal Competition. At the end of October, he will perform as tenor soloist in Mozart’s “Requiem” with the Kansas City Symphony.
