He resides in Sarasota, FL, currently and is traveling the country singing in operas and operettas, musical theater productions, and acting in Shakespearean plays. His roles include Rigoletto in “Rigoletto” with Southern Mississippi Opera and Musical Theater Co., and the Phantom, in “Phantom of the Opera” produced by the same company.

Ezekiel’s concert at FPC will be classical in nature, but will include sacred and spirituals as well. This will be his first public performance ever in Greenwood! He has graciously offered to sing in our worship service on Sunday, October 21 as well. It is exciting to be able to introduce him to his own hometown!
