Paul Davidson is proud to join Kantorei this season as a Bass/Baritone. After singing in an ACDA national honors choir in high school, he majored in vocal performance at Kansas State University. There he studied voice with Dr. Jerry Langenkamp. He sang in the Kansas State Choir under the direction of Rod Walker and Collegium Musicum under the direction of Dr. Sara Funkhouser. After he moved to Kansas City, Paul studied voice with Jean Tomelleri and, in more recent years, David Adams.
Paul performs with the Kansas City Chorale under the direction of Charles Bruffy, where he has sung as Tenor II, Baritone, and Bass. He was tenor soloist on the Grammy® Award-winning Passion Week (Grechaninov) album released in 2007, combining voices of the Kansas City Chorale and Phoenix Bach Choir (now Phoenix Chorale). He is one of the opening 'exclamation' soloists on the combined choirs' upcoming All Night Vigil (Rachmaninov) album release.
His other choral work includes singing and recording with the Santa Fe Desert Chorale. He worked as a section leader for Westport Presbyterian Church, The Spring Hill Festival Society, and the Topeka Symphony Chorus. He is now Baritone I section leader at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral (Episcopal) and cantor at St John the Baptist Catholic Parish. He performed as a soloist with the William Baker Festival Choir and the Liberty Community Chorus, and he presents solo recitals and programs at venues in Kansas City, MO and Johnson County, KS.
