o stranger to the stage, lyric tenor and Gemini Award nominee Charles Logan has appeared in concert across North America. In addition to his performances in Washington, Arizona, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec, his solo work has been recorded and broadcast on Classic KING-FM radio in Seattle. He is equally at home in the classical repertoire as he is in spirituals, jazz and cabaret.
Based in Seattle, Washington, Charles has had the pleasure of performing with the area's finest companies, specifically the Seattle Opera, the Pacific Northwest Ballet, Bellevue Opera, and the Seattle Choral Company.
In the 2008-2009 season, Charles will be once again joining the Seattle Choral Company, first in a free performance of Gabriel Fauré's Requiem at Benaroya Hall in September 2008, and later in their "Canto Hispanico" concert in February 2009 at Town Hall, Seattle.
Previously, Charles has appeared in Seattle Opera's production of Wagner's Der fliegende Holländer and Der Ring des Nibelungen, both with Steven Wadsworth directing. He has also performed in Off-Center Opera's production of Black Water, composer John Duffy's tragic American contemporary opera. He was a featured soloist with Seattle Choral Company's production of Mozart's Messiah (originally composed by Handel). He has sung in Orff's Carmina Burana (Pacific Northwest Ballet), Bizet's Carmen, Verdi's Nabucco and Mozart's Die Zauberflöte (Royal Opera Canada), Oscar Straus' The Chocolate Soldier (Toronto Operetta Theatre), and has performed the roles of Don Basilio and Don Curzio in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro (New Opera & Concert Centre). He also portrayed Captain Corcoran in Gilbert and Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore (Seattle Lesbian and Gay Chorus).
He has toured and recorded extensively with the spiritually dynamic Nathaniel Dett Chorale and can be heard on their debut CD, Listen to the Lambs, and holiday CD, An Indigo Christmas. In addition, he appeared in the documentary, Carry Me Home: The Story & Music of The Nathaniel Dett Chorale, and An Indigo Christmas LIVE!, both of which aired on the nation-wide Canadian television stations, Bravo! and Vision TV.
Charles has had the pleasure of performing for various heads of state, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and former Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien.
As a member of larger ensembles, Charles has sung with the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, Spokane Symphony Chorale and the Seattle-based tongue-in-cheek show choir, "Something Else!".
