John T.K. Scherch is known for his resonant bass voice which Opera News called “outstanding among his peers” and his stage presence, singled out as “particularly funny” by Pittsburgh in the Round. He is a diverse performer, having performed noble bass roles such as Sarastro and the Commendatore and comedic roles such as Don Alfonso and Vanuzzi. His voice possesses the flexibility demanded of a Baroque soloist and the depth necessary for the lowest notes in Mahler’s Resurrection symphony.
