Vocalist - Bass-Baritone

Having already gained substantial experience on both the opera and concert stage and possessing a voice which matches beauty with size, bass-baritone Eric Downs is rising to the forefront of young professional artists with impressive alacrity. His 2012-13 season included his debut with Shreveport Opera as Basilio in Il barbiere di Siviglia and with Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre as Colline in La bohème, and a return to Shreveport Opera as Sparafucile in Rigoletto. In 2013-14 he sings as Colline with Townsend Opera Players.

"The center of the work was given to the baritone soloist, which was the setting of a Thomas Hardy poem called ‘The Oxen.' Bass-baritone Eric Downs sang with warm and effective colorings. He drew us into the final stanza with gentle energy."
