SoloistFeaturing Derek Chester, tenor, and
the Greeley Chamber Choir

 

Praised by the New York Times for his "beautifully shaped and carefully nuanced singing," tenor Derek Chester is steadily making a name for himself in the world of classical music. Chester began his professional international career in Germany as a member of the Gächinger Kantorei and was heard as soloist in Bach Cantatas 22 and 23 with the Bach Collegium Stuttgart.  Though his career is concentrated primarily in concert work, Derek Chester holds his doctoral degree in opera studies and is equally comfortable on the operatic stage.

Mr. Chester received his Bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Georgia. As a student of renowned American tenor James Taylor, he completed his Master's Degree in Vocal Performance of Oratorio, Early Music, Song, and Chamber Music on full scholarship from the Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music. As a Fulbright Scholar, he spent a year in Germany working as a freelance musician and furthering his training with acclaimed German tenor Christoph Prégardien. While maintaining an active performing career, Chester received his Doctorate in Musical Arts in Voice Performance and Opera Studies from the University of North Texas studying under Jennifer Lane. Dr. Chester is Assistant Professor of Voice at the University of Northern Colorado.  He is a featured soloist at the Staunton Music Festival and the Colorado Bach Festival.  He continues his worldwide career as a sought after interpreter of concert and recital repertoire.
