Donovan Smith, a 2010 WHHS graduate, met with and performed for current students on February 19, 2019. Donovan is currently based in Switzerland where he sings as a freelance tenor in the opera chorus at Opernhaus Zürich (Zurich Opera House). He recently received his artist diploma in the summer of 2018 from Hochschule der Künste Bern (Bern University of the Arts) where he also completed his master’s studies.
Before he moved to Europe, Donovan sang several leading roles in musical theater productions, namely: Enjolras in Les Miserables, Horse in The Full Monty, Coalhouse Walker Jr. in Ragtime, and the Serpent in the new work Eve Apart while he was studying with the late Richard Cowan at Carnegie Mellon University.
Thank you Donovan and welcome back!
