Tenor Kyle Stegall has garnered praise around the world for his “lovely tone and ardent expression” (NY Times), as well as his “blemish-free production” (Sydney Morning Herald). Already at this early stage of his career, Kyle has performed as soloist under the baton of many of the world’s most celebrated conductors including Manfred Honeck, William Christie, and Jeffrey Thomas. Kyle’s period-informed performances are characterized by an unfailing attention to style and detail.
Engaged frequently as a concert soloist, Kyle has recently been heard in the Passions and Cantatas of J.S. Bach, the oratorios of Handel, the great masses of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven, Stravinsky’s Pulcinella, Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings, and in the world premiere of Robert Kyr’s For Those Who Hunger. As the evangelist in Bach’s St. John Passion, Kyle made his Lincoln Center debut under the direction of Maestro Masaaki Suzuki. This fall, the American Bach Soloists will release their historic HD Blu-Ray recording of Handel’s Messiah, in which Kyle was featured as tenor soloist.
As a dedicated proponent of the art song repertoire, Kyle programs and sings recitals throughout his performance season. Upcoming recitals include a French and English program with pianist Rhodri Clarke in Melbourne, and a program of sacred texts set by Benjamin Britten for the Yale Center for British Art. In the summer of 2013 Kyle was a member of the Britten-Pears Institute at the Aldeburgh Music Festival where he studied Britten song repertoire and Schubert lieder under the guidance of Ian Bostridge and Malcolm Martineau.
When not performing, Kyle commits his time to teaching. Kyle has been a voice instructor for Yale University and maintains a private studio year-round.
