Close-up portrait of Christopher Talbot

Bass-baritone Christopher Talbot is a versatile performer at home with a wide variety of repertoire, from the medieval to the present day. Praised for his “voice of warmth and strength” (Classical Review), he has performed with major ensembles across the U.S., including Seraphic Fire, The Thirteen, Apollo’s Fire, The Crossing, and the Carmel Bach Festival, where he was a 2023 Virginia Best Adams vocal fellow.

Having a particular affinity for Baroque music, Chris has been fortunate to study with some of the world’s foremost Baroque vocalists, including James Taylor and Bernarda Fink while earning his master’s degree at Yale’s Institute of Sacred Music, and Peter Harvey and Emma Kirkby while at the Internationale Bachakademie masterclass in Stuttgart, Germany. Highlights of 2023 include Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with Choral Arts Philadelphia, works of Mozart and C.P.E. Bach at the Staunton Music Festival in Virginia, a program of Italian madrigals with Parthenia Viol Consort in New York City, and John Luther Adams’ Vespers of the Blessed Earth with The Crossing and the Philadelphia Orchestra. A lifelong choral singer, Chris got his start as an 8-year old treble in the All Saints Choirs of Worcester, MA.

Chris is also a passionate music technologist and producer. While at Yale he served as a teaching assistant for a code-based computer music course, and maintains an active freelance career as an audio/video engineer and web designer. He also serves as a consulting software engineer for New Muses Project, a non-profit organization founded at Yale dedicated to the discovery and performance of works by under-represented composers.

When not singing, he can be found writing and recording original music, cooking, and cycling the bike paths around his home in Philadelphia.
