Broderick Brown has been performing since he was 5 years old when he was asked to perform the National Anthem at a neighborhood swim meet. He's been hooked since, performing in a variety of musicals, plays, operas, and concerts. Broderick is an avid singer, and participated in choir throughout all four years of high school, attending every honors choir for which he could audition. Broderick studies voice with Heather Vineyard and has attended the Virginia Governor’s School and Interlochen Arts Camp for voice. He is majoring in vocal performance at the Eastman School of Music, where he will continue to pursue his dreams of becoming an opera singer and becoming an advocate for keeping the arts alive in our schools.
