Tom Kittle, Director

Tom Kittle is a trained operatic singer with over 10 years of experience singing throughout the Colorado region, receiving both his undergraduate and graduate degrees at University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music.  Tom believes music is an essential function of the human soul to express emotion, convey story-telling, and challenge ourselves to aspire to a higher level of knowledge.  He aims to impart these ideas in his private vocal studio as well as in his performances.  

Along with his substantial list of performed roles, such as: Valentin in Faust, Escamillo in Carmen, Belcore in L’elisir d’amore, Curly in Rogers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!, Guglielmo in Cosi fan tutti, Don Giovanni in Don Giovanni, and others, he has also competed in, placed in, and won regional competitions.  Tom is also a experienced soloist concert performer, having sung Brahms’ Ein deutches Requiem, Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs, among others.

Tom is pleased to make his directorial debut with the Boulder Symphony.
