CLASSICAL SINGER (TENOR) & TEACHER
Erik Rasmussen’s unique and colorful tenor voice has been praised as, “youthful, amusing, and crowd-pleasing.” (Brooklyn Discovery) Hailing from Brentwood, New York, he aims to inspire a world of good will through live performance and education in the arts while advocating to expand accessibility and equity within arts education.
In demand as a soloist and professional chorister in the New York City area, Rasmussen has appeared in concert with the Bard Festival Chorale, Musica Viva NY, the Christ Chapel Chamber Series, Courtney's Stars of Tomorrow, and more. He is also available for private voice and beginning piano lessons virtually and in the Long Island, New York area.
"King Kaspar, Erik Rasmussen was youthful, amusing, and crowd-pleasing. His singing of "This is my box" with its precious stones and candies was deliciously done as he offers Amahl some licorice. Rasmussen's tenorial and frenzied cries of "Lovely, lovely, lovely" and "Thank you, thank you, thank you" were amusingly lovable as was his parrot who bites, as seen in his bandaged finger."
