Described by the New York Times as “Excellent – notably… the countertenor Daniel Moody, whose vocal resonance makes a profoundly startling impression”, Daniel is known for the unusual beauty of his voice as well as his expressive performance of both opera and early music.
Mr. Moody has performed several operatic roles, most notably Nerone in Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea, Cesare in Handel’s Giulio Cesare, Oberon in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and L'Enfant in Ravel's L'Enfant et les sortileges. As a vocal fellow at Tanglewood Music Festival, Mr. Moody sang roles in Britten’s Curlew River and Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas with acclaimed director Mark Morris. Daniel has performed at the Boston, Indianapolis and Washington Early Music Festivals and has been heard on radio performances including the national program ‘Sunday Baroque' with the Peabody Consort.
Mr. Moody has sung regularly at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC and with other choral groups in the Baltimore and DC area before moving to pursue a degree in early music at Yale. He made his Asian debut with the Hong Hong Voices and has won prizes in several competitions, notably the Russell Wonderlic Recital Competition and the New York Oratorio Society Competition.
Daniel has sung and worked with conductors Stefan Asbury, Simeon Carrington, David Hill, Ken Lam, Lyle Nordstrom Masaaki Suzuk and has worked with stage directors Roger Brunyate, David Gately, Nic Muni, Timothy Nelson, and Mark Morris.
Daniel is a graduate of Peabody Conservatory where he studied with soprano Ah Young Hong, and is continuing his studies at Yale University’s Institute of Sacred Music.
