American baritone Darian Anderson Worrell is the winner of the 2019 Harlem Opera Vocal Competition. He lived in Germany for a few years, and while presenting recitals throughout Germany, he was praised by newspaper Die Stimme for his “smooth, characteristic style”. The newspaper called him a “master of his instrument in all facets”.
Worrell made his Carnegie Hall debut (under conductor Benjamin Zander) and Alice Tully Hall debut (under John Page) while he was a student at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.
Born in Speightstown, Barbados, at the age of eleven he relocated to the USA. He studied at the New England Conservatory and Longy School of Music. He completed his undergraduate studies in vocal performance at Lehman College, Bronx, New York under the tutelage of Osceola Davis-Smith and Dr. Diana Mittler-Battipaglia.
In 2020 Worrell was offered a participation in the Camerata Bardi Vocal Academy (Teatro Grattacielo in collaboration with Bel Canto International Club).
His upcoming engagements include the role of Nicola and an understudy for the role of Borov in Giordano’s “Fedora” (Teatro Grattacielo), as well as concert performances in the USA and Barbados.
