Keven Keys, baritone

Keven Keys’ “handsome, mahogany tone” (Washington Post) and beautifully “focused singing” (Chicago Classical Review) have delighted audiences with a wide range of repertoire in both opera and concert literature. 

He has appeared with several orchestras throughout the Midwest and beyond, performing Fauré’s Requiem with the Grant Park Symphony, the Bach B Minor Mass with the Kalamazoo Bach Festival, Haydn’s “Lord Nelson” Mass at the Peninsula Music Festival, Bach cantata BWV 82, “Ich habe genug,” with the Sherwood Conservatory Orchestra, Vaughn-Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem, Danielpour’s An American Requiem with the Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra and Mahler’s monumental 8th Symphony with the Colorado Mahlerfest.

Recent appearances have included Mozart’s “Coronation Mass” with Music of the Baroque and the Duruflé Requiem with the Music Institute of Chicago. His concert repertoire includes Mendelsohn’s Elijah, Handel’s Messiah, and Mozart’s Requiem, with groups including the award winning Orion Ensemble, the Illinois Philharmonic, Waukegan Symphony, Elmhurst Symphony, Northeastern Illinois University Orchestra, and the Acanthus Chamber Orchestra. He is also an active recitalist, performing throughout the Midwest.
