LOGAN S. SHIELDS, countertenor, is elated to be joining Chanticleer for his first season. A peculiarly proud Michigander, Mr. Shields studied vocal performance at Western Michigan University and Grand Valley State University. While living in Grand Rapids, he performed with St. Mark's Episcopal, Schola Choir of the Grand Diocese, and OperaGR. Most recently he sang with Audivi, a professional ensemble based in Ann Arbor under the direction of Noah Horn. Outside of the classical realm he has been featured in DownBeat Magazine's Student Music Awards, winning "Best Blues/Pop/Rock Group of 2014" for his contributions on the Aaron Garcia Band's album, Glass Girl. Other passions include craft beer, vegetarianism, philosophical banter, freestyle rap, pugs, and spending time with his partner, Gabrielle.
