Introducing Canadian Barihunk Dylan Langan

Dylan Langan
We're introducing readers to the multi-talented Canadian barihunk, composer and musician Dylan Langan. We learned about him after a reader forward a feature article from the Waterloo Region Record in Ontario, Canada, which you can read HERE.

He's currently pursuing his Honour’s Bachelor of Music with a concentration in Composition and Vocal Performance at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. He's studying voice with internationally acclaimed baritone James Westman. In addition to singing, he has studied bassoon, piano, saxophone, euphonium and guitar.

Sam Bibby plays Dylan Langan's Waltz in G Major:

As a composer, Langan has produced over 350 works of Electronic Dance Music alone. While best known classically for his Violin Concerto in D Minor, Langan has written for a variety of other instruments and ensembles. He currently studies under Jules Léger Prize winner Linda Catlin Smith and is in the process of writing a number of works.

On February 1st, Langan will be directing and performing in his operatic composition Rise of the Roaches. From February 27-March 1, he will perform Marco in Puccini's Gianni Schicchi. Both performances are at Wilfrid Laurier University. This summer, he'll be honing his skill further at the Halifax Summer Opera where he'll perform the role of Carl Oleson in Kurt Weill's Street Scene.
