Zach Rude

 Zach grew up in small town Minnesota. His first voice teacher was his aunt Joy Ciaffonni
who encouraged Zach to start singing. Zach received his Bachelor of Music from Concordia
College-Moorhead, studying as a tenor with Professor David Hamilton and Dr. Anthony
Leathem. Zach also sang with and was an administrative intern for the Fargo-Moorhead Opera
company during his time at Concordia.
Zach has performed with the Lakes Area Music Festival in their productions of Carmen,
The Magic Flute, and La Belle Hélène. He also participated in master classes with co-founder
and artistic director of the festival, John Taylor Ward. Previous roles for Zach include Count
Almaviva (Barber of Seville) and Dr. Blind (Die Fledermaus) both performed at Concordia. A
talented vocal technician, Zach excels at coloratura passages in both the Baroque and Bel Canto
styles. He is currently honing his skills at the University of Washington where he is earning his
Master of Music in Voice. Zach loves chess and riding his bicycle when he is not performing or
studying music
