Noted for his “subtly inflected tenor phrasing” (Berkshire Eagle) Daveed Buzaglo is a highly versatile up and coming performer. Equally comfortable in the recital hall and on the operatic stage, Daveed has performed with many of the most prestigious and cutting edge festivals and companies in the country. These include appearances with Opera Philadelphia, Finger Lakes Opera, Songfest, Killer Queen Opera, Opera NEO, Emmanuel Music, the Western Reserve Chamber Music Series and The Art Song Preservation Society of New York where he was a finalist in the 2020 Mary Trueman song competition. Buzaglo’s studies have taken him to the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy, the Oberlin Conservatory of Music where he received his Bachelor of Music, Stony Brook University where he received his Master of Music, an apprenticeship with Des Moines Metro Opera where he took part in the Emmy ® nominated production of Dvorak’s Rusalka, and a vocal fellowship at the Tanglewood Music Center where he worked side by side with artists such as Dawn Upshaw, Stephanie Blythe, Renée Fleming and Sanford Sylvan.
Daveed also has a passion for teaching and creating. In 2021 Buzaglo co-created, co-directed, and was featured in a short film entitled The Ballad of Longwood Glen based on a musical setting by American composer Richard Wilson of Vladamir Nabakov’s poem of the same title. While at Stony Brook University Daveed led the undergraduate voice department and currently is the head of voice at the Bronx School for Music. In 2012 Daveed was named a national winner in classical voice with YoungArts and went on to be named a Presidential Scholar in the Arts Semi-finalist. He now proudly serves as the discipline coordinator for the Youngarts voice department, working with the national panel to decide each year’s class.Back
