The reader submission suggestion proved to be more successful than imagined, so if you've submitted someone for posting and he hasn't appeared, we apologize. We also can't guarantee that everyone will be posted.
Our most recent reader submission is Polish barihunk Milosz Galaj, who is a graduate of the Vocal and Acting Department at the Music Academy in Gdansk where he studied both opera singing and musical theatre.
He currently performs as a soloist with the Early Music Ensamble Cappella Gedanensis. In October 2009, he recorded and performed with the ensamble at the prestigious Oratorio Music Festival
Sacromontana on the Holy Mount in Gostyn (Poland), singing the solo part in the premiere of the ‘Litany ex D’ by Adam Jedrowski.
In 2009 he made his theatrical debut in the premiere of "The Fall of the Gods" by Luchino Visconti in Wybrzeze Theatre in Gdansk. In the show Milosz performed the beautiful alto aria "Erbarme dich, mein Gott" from Bach’s "St. Matthew Passion." [See video. Contains partial nudity]
In April 2010 he played the role of Uberto in the modern jazz version of the opera "La Serva Padrona" by Giovanni Pergolesi.
In 2011 as a part of his BA recital he performed ‘Five Mystical Songs’ by Ralph Vaughan Williams, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the piece.
The eclectic performer also took part in a multimedia project by Wojciech Pus, in which his electronically processed vocal interpretation of the Schubert’s ‘Erlkonig’ became a romantic element of the soundtrack.
