About Enoch Sherman

Enoch Sherman’s singing career took him from coast to coast in the U.S. and all over the world for two decades, singing leading operatic roles ranging from “Canio” in I Pagliacci to the Duke in Rigoletto.  Born in Michigan and reared in Wisconsin, he completed his musical education at The Juilliard School in New York, where he was awarded a full scholarship with the American Opera Center. While there, he created the role of “Caesar” in the World Premiere of Samuel Barber’s Anthony and Cleopatra. He was tenor soloist in Verdi’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall, and premiered several works by Ned Rorem, including the opera Bertha at Alice Tully Hall.

His career took him to the San Francisco Opera, The Korean National Opera, and the Chicago Lyric Opera, where he was called in at the last minute to fill in for an ailing Luciano Pavarotti as Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor.  He was Artist in Residence with the St. Paul Opera in Minnesota, and performed at Tanglewood with Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony. 

Locally, Enoch is a frequent soloist at First Presbyterian Church, where he sang roles in their productions of Amahl and the Night Visitors and The Nativity.  He has appeared with the Anna Maria Orchestra, Gloria Musicae, and Voices of Song, and maintains a private voice studio.  He is married to soprano Annette Parker Sherman.  Their daughter Faith is also an opera singer.
