Adam Kuiack

Johannes Brahms – German Requiem

Canadian Baritone Adam Kuiack recently completed his Master of Music – Opera Performance at the University of Toronto, studying with renowned artists countertenor Daniel Taylor and baritone Russell Braun. In June of 2021, he completed a Quebec tour of the new Aureas Voces opera ‘Jimmy & Rosalia’ – a blend of Canadian folk music and music from Handel’s ‘Acis and Galatea’ that was met with enthusiasm by audiences and included a sold out premier at Salle Bourgie in Montreal.

Highlights of this season include his Toronto Bach Festival debut and multiple performances of Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem and Handel’s Messiah. He has sung numerous operatic roles and is regularly featured as a soloist with choirs in Ontario. Since March, he’s begun to get back into writing and performing his own songs on guitar and piano and is enjoying some free time to explore new music.
