Born in Ontario and raised in New Jersey, Canadian-American baritone Michael Nyby has performed extensively in opera, concert, and theatre throughout Canada and the United States. Michael is a successful interpreter of new music and has numerous world premieres to his credit. Particularly noted in concert for his interpretation of Carmina Burana, Michael was praised for his “stentorian masculinity” by Musical Toronto after his debut performance of the Orff masterpiece with the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, and for the “incredible control and command of his tender and rich baritone” by The Walleye after his performance with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra. Michael resides in Hamilton, ON with his beautiful wife and poorly-behaved cat. He is an alumnus of Ithaca College (B.Mus) and the University of British Columbia (M.Mus).
