Baritone Andrew McLaughlin is praised for his artful interpretations of opera, oratorio, and art song repertoire. A frequent performer with Washington National Opera, he appeared in roles such as Brian Young in An American Soldier, Rex in An American Man, the Spanish Sailor in Moby Dick, and in their production of Carmen.

Baritone Andrew McLaughlin is praised for his artful interpretations of opera, oratorio, and art song repertoire. A frequent performer with Washington National Opera, he appeared in roles such as Brian Young in An American Soldier, Rex in An American Man, the Spanish Sailor in Moby Dick, and in their production of Carmen. As a champion of new works, McLaughlin performed roles in the premières of Robert Paterson and Mark Campbells’ The Whole Truth with UrbanArias, Janice Hamer’s Lost Childhood with National Philharmonic Orchestra, Claude Debussy/Robert Orledge’s La Saulaie with University of Maryland Repertory Orchestra, and Frank Proto’s Shadowboxer with Maryland Opera Studio.

In recent seasons, McLaughlin performed the roles of Judge/Captain/Crook in Bernstein’s Candide with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Schaunard in Puccini’s La bohème with Virginia Opera, and Gregorio in an exciting co-production of Roméo et Juliette with Opera Carolina, Virginia Opera, Lyric Opera Baltimore, and Toledo Opera.

As a concert artist, Mr. McLaughlin performed as the baritone soloist in Faure’s Requiem and Bach’s Johannes Passion with the National Philharmonic Orchestra at The Strathmore; Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with Inscape Orchestra; Orff’s Carmina Burana and the world première of Debussy’s La Saulaie at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center; Argento’s A Few Words About Chekhov at the Art of Argento Festival; and Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden gesellen with Capital City Symphony. He also had the honor of joining famed mezzo-soprano and new music advocate, Frederica von Stade, and maestro Timothy Long in “A Few Words About Chekhov” to close out the University of Maryland’s 2012 Art of Argento Festival.

McLaughlin held artist apprenticeships at the Aspen Music Festival and School, Pine Mountain Music Festival, Virginia Opera, and at Central City Opera, where he made his professional début as Le Dancaïre in Carmen, and performed as Guccio in Gianni Schicchi.

Mr. McLaughlin earned his Master of Music degree from University of Maryland Opera Studio and his Bachelor of Music degree from West Chester University School of Music.  He subsequently won several competitions and awards including the Apprentice Artist Award during his time with Central City Opera, 2nd Place of The American Prize, semi-finalist of the McCammon Voice Competition, and earned the Marc & Eva Stern Fellowship of SongFest.
