About Scott Hogsed
Scott Hogsed is an Atlanta native where his love for performing began. He attended Kennesaw State College, Georgia State University, Oberlin Conservatory, and Indiana University’s Jacob School of Music. His educational pursuits have largely been focused on the art of opera singing and performing, and his professional life has been a rich blend of many performative genres. His professional career began in 1994 in the title role of Don Giovanni with The San Francisco Opera’s Western Opera Theatre Tour. In 1995, he made his debut as Wagner in Faust for The Atlanta Opera, sparking a long and fruitful relationship with that company.
In 2003, he made his New York City Opera debut as Dancairo in Carmen, a role he later reprised for James Robinson’s production with Seattle Opera. He was subsequently hired by NYCO as a house singer, a position which lasted for five years and encompassed some twenty-five different roles. One highlight during his time at NYCO was performing the role of Anthony Hope in Sweeney Todd staring Elaine Paige as Mrs. Lovett.
His Equity credits include a tour with the Theater of the Star’s production of Camelot as Lancelot opposite Robert Goulet’s King Arthur, and Curly in Oklahoma! with the Broadway Series of Charlotte staring Rue McClanahan as Aunt Eller.
In addition to traveling the country performing in opera and musical theatre, Scott also had a rich concert career. One highlight from his concert work includes performing with The Brooklyn Philharmonic under the baton of Robert Spano in the title role of Sibelius’ Kullervo.
As his interest in teaching began to grow, Scott decided to further his technical training in the field of singing. To that end, he applied to Indiana University and was granted a spot in the voice studio of renowned singer and teacher Costanza Cuccaro. As a graduate student in the Jacob’s School of Music, he was heard in the roles of Figaro in Il Barbiere Di Siviglia, Enrico in Lucia Di Lammermoor, Germont in La Traviata and Signor Naccarelli in Adam Guettel's The Light in the Piazza, as well as the baritone soloist in Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem, and Simon in Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus.
While a student at IU, Scott began to work for the Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance as an adjunct voice teacher, and later became in charge of running auditions for the B.F.A. Musical Theatre and Contemporary Dance programs, as well as giving tours to and speaking with prospective students interested in one of the B.F.A. programs.
