The young American bass-baritone with an “enormous, thrilling voice seemingly capable [of] waking the dead.”

*This event is being held at a private home in the Somerset Hills. Location information will be made available upon purchase.

Last time Dashon Burton performed with MISH was in 2012 when he was a soloist in our very first performance of Messiah.  As a permanent memorial of that epic performance, he left behind the YouTube recording of “The trumpet shall sound” – still MISH’s most-viewed video.  He returns to the Somerset Hills on Saturday, January 4 as a front rank international singer.  His distinctive bass-baritone voice, described by the Wall Street Journal as an “enormous, thrilling voice seemingly capable …… [of] raising the dead”, is in demand in opera houses and concert halls everywhere.  His recordings include Songs of Struggle and Redemption: We Shall Overcome, described by the New York Times as “profoundly moving ….. a beautiful and loveable disc”.  He returns to MISH immediately following his Christmas performances of Messiah with the New York Philharmonic.
