Guest artist tenor Victor Starsky.

Victor Starsky is a native of Queens, New York where he works as a teacher, carpenter, martial artist, and socially conscious musician. After two years of Philosophy at St. John’s University, Mr. Starsky studied for three years at the Aaron Copland School of a Music under the guidance of Rose Marie Crouse. After singing the role of the Celebrant in Leonard Bernstein’s “Mass” under the baton of Maestro Maurice Peress, Mr. Starsky went on to sing Don José in Bizet’s Carmen with New York Opera Exchange in May 2015. Opera Today writes, “Victor Starsky’s Don José is terrifying and compelling, with a voice that performs vocal acrobatics with strength and beauty that remains undiminished through his final line.”

Mr. Starsky has recently sung the roles of Tony in Opera North’s production of “West Side Story”, Gustav Mahler’s “Das Lied Von Der Erde” with M. Peress in October of 2015, and makes his solo debut in Carnegie Hall in November of 2016. His future engagements include Alfredo in Verdi’s La Traviata, Ferrando in Mozart’s Cosí Fan Tutte, Lensky in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, an Italian Aria concert with the Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra under Maestra Tong Chen, and a premier of “Song of Wandering Aengus” bu Howard Lew, for tenor and orchestra under Maestra Dorothy Savitch with Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra this spring.

Mr. Starsky studies with Andrea del Giudice, and is advised and mentored by Mr. Peter Randsman and Mr. William Thomas Smiddy.

Victor owes tremendous gratitude to his parents, teachers, friends, and loved ones, without whom none of this would be possible.
