     Derek Lee Ragin

The countertenor Derek Lee Ragin is both a master of baroque vocal styles and a renowned interpreter of New Music. Ragin was born in West Point, New York, and began his training at Oberlin College Conservatory of Music in Ohio. Later he studied at the University of Maryland and at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam. After winning many awards, including a first prize at the Munich Competition (1986) and the Grand Prix Lyrique in Monte Carlo (1988), he gave his debut at the Salzburg Festival and the London Proms as Orpheus in Gluck's "Orfeo ed Euridice", under John Eliot Gardiner.

Ragin is a regular guest at international festivals and a much sought-after soloist at all the leading opera houses. His roles include Didymus in Handel's Theodora, the title roles in Handel's "Giulio Cesare" and Alexander Balus, and Guido in "Flavio". But his repertoire can also boast of Schnittke's "Faust Cantata", Britten's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", and Bernstein's "Missa Brevis" and "Chichester Psalms". In recent years he has been heard in Ligeti's Le Grand Macabre at the Salzburg Festival and at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris, in a production by Peter Sellers conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen. Ragin's broad lied repertoire extends from John Dowland and Samuel Barber to gospels and spirituals.
