The American counter-tenor, Bradley Fugate, grew up in Elkin, North Carolina and began his academic musical studies at Furman University in Greenville, SC, then continued his education at Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music where he began singing early music.
After post-graduate work at Florida State in the Voice Performance department, Bradley Fugate moved to Boston to study at New England Conservatory and to take advantage of the wonderful music-making opportunities. In an effort to regain his Southern heritage, he has just recently moved to Greensboro, NC and is happy to call North Carolina home again.
