Chase Chandler began his vocal career at Saddleback Community College under the guidance of Dr. Scott Farthing and performed the lead role, Nemorino, in Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore. Chase graduated with his B.A. in Vocal Performance and Music Education from Concordia University, Irvine. He studied voice with the renowned vocalist, Diane Elias. Chase had the opportunity to perform in CUI’s primary choral program as first tenor and perform lead roles in their opera scenes program (including the entire role of the prince in Warren Martin’s The True Story of Cinderella). He then received his M.A. in Music Composition from California State University, Fullerton (studying with Dr. Ken Walicki), while also performing in the CSUF Opera Scenes two years in a row (performing such roles as Roméo in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette and Prince Ramiro in Rossini’s La Cenerentola).
For three years Chase Chandler has been a cantor at Mission Basilica San Juan, the vocal soloist at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Newport Beach, and was a vocal soloist at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Laguna Niguel for a year and a half (stopping in 2017). He wrote his own original opera, Reverie, that was completed in May 2017 and hopes to have it performed in the next few years.
