90284February 14, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — "Thomas Cooley, a tenor, sang with supernal sweetness in the Sanctus, his voice soaring from on high in the dress circle," writes the New York Times' Steve Smith in a review of yesterday's performance of Hector Berlioz's Grande Messe des Morts ("High Mass for the Dead"). The program, part of the Carnegie Hall Choral Workshop, featured the Orchestra of St. Luke's, conducted by Robert Spano, and a chorus of 182 voices.

Cooley is a 1991 graduate of the DePauw University School of Music. He was a featured soloist at the performance of the Requiem.

On February 18 & 19, Cooley will perform Joseph Haydn's The Creation with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Douglas Boyd.  You'll find additional details at the ISO's website.
