Venezuelan baritone Camilo Lopez is the Co-Founder and Artistic Coordinator of Voxalis, an emerging arts organisation dedicated to presenting outstanding performances of art song and opera in Brisbane, and providing opportunities for both emerging and established classical singers. Camilo looks forward to launching Voxalis’ 2023 season on the 17th of February.
Camilo completed a Bachelor of Music and a Masters of Music Studies in Opera Performance (with Distinction) at the Queensland Conservatorium where he studied with Dr. Margaret Schindler and Mattias Lower. Here, Camilo received multiple academic awards including the Griffith Award for Academic Excellence from 2018 to 2021, and the Griffith Remarkable Scholarship for postgraduate studies.
Previous roles and scenes include Aeneas (Dido and Aeneas), Harry Easter (Street Scene), Demetrius (A Midsummer Night’s Dream scenes), Schaunard (La bohème scenes), Il Conte (Le Nozze di Figaro scenes), Un Sargent (Manon scenes). Camilo received critical acclaim for his role as Harry Easter in Kurt Weill’s Street Scene. Peter Pinne (Stage Whispers) stated:
“The work came alive with the obvious Broadway pieces, with Camilo Lopez as Harry Easter nailing the song-and-dance Wouldn’t You Like To be On Broadway”.
Equally at home on the concert platform, he has performed several art song recitals and has collaborated with ensembles such as the Brisbane Concert Orchestra and The Amadeus Orchestra. In 2022, Camilo performed Rameau’s secular cantata ‘Thetis’ alongside the Brisbane Baroque Players. In 2015-2016, Camilo took part of the Teatro Teresa Carreño’s season as a chorus member for their productions of Tosca and Los Martirios de Colón
