Praised by Washington Life as a "consistent standout," bass-baritone Matt Sullivan has enjoyed an active career as a concert artist throughout the east coast and Europe. His most recent season included performances of Bach's Missa Brevis in G Minor (BWV 235) and Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244a), Händel's Messiah, Pärt's Passio, Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610, and Faure's Requiem. Previous seasons have included performances with the Folger Consort, Elm City Consort, the Boston Early Music Festival, Peabody Consort, Baltimore Baroque Band, Mountainside Baroque, Opera Lafayette, and the American Opera Theatre.
This season, Matt returns to the concert stage for performances of Bach's Trauerode (BWV 198) and Hasse's Miserere with Masaaki Suzuki at the Lincoln Center, Brahms's Ein Deutsches Requiem and Händel's Occasional Oratorio with David Hill, and Herzogenberg's Die Geburt Christi with Marguerite Brooks. Later in the season, he will tour India performing Bach's Magnificat with Juilliard415. In January, he will record Brahms's Ein Deutches Requiem for Hyperion, also under David Hill.
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Matt is a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory, where he studied under John Shirley-Quirk and William Sharp. He is currently completing his master's degree in early vocal performance at the Yale School of Music under the direction of James Taylor.
