Twin brothers Joseph and Joshua Dennis, of McKinney, are wrapping up an experience of a lifetime as summer apprentices with the Santa Fe Opera. According to Jonathan Pell, The Dallas Opera’s Artistic Director, these two are ones to watch.
“Two other tenors also stood out, Joseph and Joshua Dennis from McKinney, Texas, who sang wonderfully but were also terribly funny as ‘Alfred’ and ‘Eisenstein’ in the jail scene from FLEDERMAUS. I have previously mentioned Joshua (he was an apprentice in Santa Fe last summer and stood out in last year’s Apprentice Concert and again in an appearance in last week’s concert) but this was the first time that I had heard his twin brother Joseph. Both of them are very talented, and it will be interesting to see how their careers develop.”
Keep an eye out for these two singers to appear in an opera company near you!
