Zachary Gordin: Orff, Orff. Woof, Woof.

Zachary Gordin rehearsing with Festival Opera
We've seen opera singers show up in all kinds of garb for rehearsals from turbans to yoga outfits, but few make quite the impression that barihunk Zachary Gordin makes. This photo was taken at the recent rehearsal for Festival Opera's "Make Our Garden Grow" benefit in Walnut Creek, California. Gordin is known for his flashy, flesh revealing outfits and occasional baubles, bangles...and bright, shiny beads.

A regular fixture on the San Francisco Bay Area music scene, where he started as a countertenor, Gordin has increasingly become a fixture in Southern California, as well. His next appearance will be on July 28th with the Pacific Shores Philharmonic at the Libbey Bowl in Ojai, California. Gordin will be reprising the baritone role in Orff's Carmina Burana, which he recently performed to critical acclaim with the Oakland East Bay Symphony.

All we have to say is: WOOF!!! We want to get invited to some rehearsals.
