    University of Delaware
    301 Amy E. du Pont Music Building
    Newark, DE 19716


    ​Versatile and accomplished in both comedy and drama for the operatic stage, baritone Brian B. Carter has been hailed by Houston Chronicle as having “a big, commanding voice that demonstrated [Carter’s] range, technique, musicality and sensitivity.” Dr. Carter has sung dozens of lead and supporting roles in opera companies throughout the United States, including Sarasota Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, Austin Lyric Opera, Dicapo Opera, Opera San José, Opera Delaware, Opera North, Greensboro Opera and Opera Illinois. Favorite roles include the title roles in Rigoletto and Gianni Schicchi, George (Of Mice and Men), Ping (Turandot), Tonio (Pagliacci) and Alberich (Das Rheingold).

    Though the majority of his performing has been on the operatic stage, Brian B. Carter is equally at home in the concert hall. In addition to numerous song recitals, he has been the baritone soloist for many concert works including the title role in Mendelssohn’s Elijah, the Fauré and Duruflé Requiems, Rossini’s Stabat Mater, Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Dubois’s Seven Last Words of Christ, the J.S. Bach Magnificat, and Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem and Five Mystical Songs.

    Dr. Carter teaches as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Delaware, and at the University of Pennsylvania through the Blutt College House Music Program, where he is sought out for his expertise in both classical and commercial styles of singing. He has also taught at The University of Texas at Austin and Temple University.

    Dr. Carter received both his Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music at the University of Texas at Austin under the supervision of Profs. David Small (voice) and Darlene Wiley (pedagogy). He earned his Bachelor of Music at San José State University where he studied with Dr. David Rohrbaugh (voice) and Metropolitan Opera star Ms. Irene Dalis (opera). Prior to his university study, Dr. Carter was a student of the great performer of American art song and creator of the AIDS Quilt Songbook, William Parker, whom he credits as his first inspiration to become a singing artist.
