A native of Seattle, Mr. Rind began his singing career while a graduate student in philosophy at the University of Chicago. By the time he had obtained his doctorate, he had performed principal roles in five operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan, as well as comprimario roles in Tosca, Carmen, and The Magic Flute. Since moving to the Boston area, he has enjoyed an even more active musical career. In the summer and fall of 2007, he will be appearing as a soloist in "summer sings" with the Paul Madore Chorale and the Masterworks Chorale, and in operatic productions with Opera del West and Longwood Opera.
