Music chaplain performs across the city

November 4, 2011

Ken Weber, associate chaplain for liturgy and music in University Ministry, has recently performed in a number of prestigious productions in the New Orleans area, including his latest appearance in the New Orleans Opera Association's production of Puccini’s “Turandot.”

Earlier this fall, Weber sang the role of Valentin for Opera Louisianne’s production of Gounod’s “Faust” at the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge, and in May, he will sing the part of the first soldier in Richard Stauss’ “Salome.”

“I always enjoy performing with the New Orleans Opera. It gives me a chance to keep up my singing, while working in a professional setting with several Loyola voice students and world-class singers from the Metropolitan Opera and other first-rate companies,” Weber said.

Weber received his master’s of music in vocal performance from the New England Conservatory of Music before moving to New Orleans to continue his studies at Loyola under instruction from Philip Frohnmayer, M.M.
