Kenneth Kellogg

Bass

""The tall and distinguished Kenneth Kellogg made an eloquent Prince Gremin, his deep bass voice resounding throughout Meymandi Hall as if wrapped in velvet...""

Josmar Lopes, 12 March 2016

""Kenneth Kellogg, a 6-foot 5-inch bass baritone who has sung in starring roles at Washington Opera, does most of the heavy expositional lifting as the young Griffith. With appropriate panache, and a chiseled boxer’s body, he makes a believable character, with a voice than can handle both the operatic and the jazz portions." "

Seen and Heard International, Harvey Steiman, 19 February 2016
