George Evans

April-2007

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, George Evans was raised in a musical environment. His mother a world-renowned voice teacher and father an equally revered musicologist, linguist, and vocal coach, it seemed logical that George would proceed to a career in classical music, but that was not to be. A fascination with classic pop records, Hollywood musicals and popular standards held far greater appeal than opera for George. He trained seriously in Musical Theatre at the first such school to offer a degree program in the field, but after working diligently on his chosen craft, George arrived in New York City in the 80s only to find that the business had moved away from the music he loved. He reluctantly left music theatre and found satisfaction in the research and performance of The Great American Songbook.
