Dr. Joshua Zink, a baritone, is an experienced performer on stage, in concert, and recitals. His performance history includes operatic roles with Opera New Jersey, Dayton Opera, Nashville Opera, Opera Omaha, Pine Mountain Music Festival, and Opera America’s Series in New York City “Exploring American Voices” where he was showcased in Michael Ching’s new American a-capella opera “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Recent operatic roles include “Snooks” in William Bolcom’s A Wedding, “Pandolfe” in Cendrillon, and “Sid” in La Fanciulla del West.   He has sung with various orchestras throughout the United States in standard to modern concert and oratorio repertoire.  Robert Cohen’s new work Alzheimer’s Stories with the Fresno Master Chorale and Orchestra is a recent concert highlight, with the composer in residence. Another contemporary piece on the operatic stage recently was Tyler White’s O Pioneers!, which is adaptation of the Willa Cather novel.  Particularly fond of song, he has performed Schubert’s Winterreise three times with the “Dean of American Accompanists,” John Wustman.

As an advocate for new works his scholarly activity investigates and advances new music in America with composer Tom Cipullo’s America 1968.  Dr. Zink looks forward to future collaboration with Cipullo, and other living American composers.
