Raymond Martinez (Baritone)

Born: USA

The American baritone, Raymond Martinez, began his singing career with the San Francisco Boys Chorus and performed the role of Miles in San Francisco Opera's production of Benjamin Britten's Turn of the Screw. Since then he has appeared with Magnificat, the California Bach Society, Paul Hillier's Theater of Voices, the Baroque Arts Ensemble and the Philharmonia Baroque Chorale. He is a founding member of Chanticleer and, in addition to the Philharmonia Baroque Chorale and American Bach Soloists, currently sings with the Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys and in the San Francisco Opera Chorus.

Raymond Martinez appeared (as the Sea Monster) in the world premier of Henry Cowell's Atlantis with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra directed by Michael Tilson Thomas and performed with gambist Jordi Savall's Hespèrion XX in the Berkeley Early Music Festival. His wide-ranging solo repertoire spans such diverse roles as Jesus in J.S. Bach's Johannes Passion (BWV 245) to the title role in P.D.Q. Bach's Oedipus Tex.
