Toronto-born bass-baritone Paul Oros nurtured his vocal talents at St. Michael’s Choir School and the Royal Conservatory of Music, with early performing forays with the Toronto Mendelssohn Youth Choir and Ontario Youth Choir. He joined Tafelmusik in 2001.
Regarded for his burnished tone and nuanced interpretations, Paul’s had the good fortune to perform with a number of highly regarded ensembles, including the Canadian Opera Company, National Ballet of Canada, Opera Atelier, The Theatre of Early Music, Opera in Concert, Opera Hamilton, Toronto Operetta Theatre, The Assembly of Voices, Orpheus Choir, Bach Consort, and Soundstreams’ Choir 21. Guest appearances include the medieval ensemble Sine Nomine, Pax Christi Chorale, Toronto Chamber Choir, and Toronto Consort. In addition to critically acclaimed recordings with Tafelmusik and Toronto Consort, he can also be heard on the soundtracks to the television series The Tudors, The Borgias, and Vikings.
Paul regards music as a key component in the synthesis that fuels his passions for the visual arts, literature, history, architecture, and dance, where each medium reflects, influences, and impacts the experiences of the other. When these elements come together it makes for an intensely satisfying and rewarding experience. Performance highlights include High Mass at St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Mozart's Don Giovanni with Opera Atelier at the New National Theatre in Tokyo, a celebrated production of Wagner's Der fliegende Holländer with the Canadian Opera Company, and the recorded soundscape installation A Time to Hear for Here in the Spirit House of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal at the Royal Ontario Museum.
