"Baritone Steven Herring has a powerful voice and created a threatening character in the role of Don Pizarro... We found ourselves hating the character and loving the singer in equal measure!"

Meche Kroop

"Steven Herring was a demonic, strong, venomous and vocally incisive Pizarro whose very presence crackled with arrogance and evil."

Legendary artist manager, Robert Lombardo

"These singers differ greatly in timbre and personality, but the qualities they showed in common indicate what they have learned from this great singer and great teacher (Todd Duncan): clarity of diction and a sense of the importance of words for communication and emotional expression; well-focused tone that seems to be effortlessly produced and supported; a kind of self-assurance that allows them to blend into an ensemble while still contributing a personal flavor to it."

Joseph McLellan, Washington Post

"The most memorable number of the evening was, as it should be, "Bess, You Is My Woman Now," sung by Herring and Chandler in a style worthy of Duncan, who introduced it to the world in 1935." 

Joseph McLellan, Washington Post


Known for his strong voice and intense character portrayal, Steven Herring is at home in the Verdi and Italian baritone repertoire. Performed roles include Amonasro, Germont, Rigoletto, Sacristan, Sharpless, and Belcore.
