Kenneth Kellogg


American bass, Kenneth Kellogg begins the 2019/20 season in Europe as he returns to Ópera de Oviedo in the role of Count Sam Horn Un ballo in Maschera. He travels to Kraków, Poland for performances of Rossini’s Sigismondo singing the two roles of Ulderico and Zenovito with Capella Cracoviensis. At both Washington National Opera and Lyric Opera of Chicago the artist returns to the role of Father Blue written by Jeanine Tesori and Tazewell Thompson for Glimmerglass Festival’s world premiere of the piece last summer where he inaugurated the role to great acclaim. Also at Washington National Opera he makes his role debut as Crown Porgy & Bess, and on the concert platform he joins Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra for the newly commissioned Obama Song Cycle for the Charles Ives Concert Series.

“Jacqueline Echols and Kenneth Kellogg made important contributions as Helen and Sam.”
