Evan Cooper is a fourth-year Vocal Performance/Psychology major from Waco, Texas and a Fall 2014 NUGI. Outside of LHS, Evan is involved with the Butler Opera Center's undergraduate program. Last week he performed in the opera "Così fan tutte" and did a wonderful job! He works so hard and always manages to dedicate time to LHS amidst his busy opera schedule.
If you could sing with anyone from any time period, who would it be?
If I could sing with anyone ever, it'd be Samuel Ramey. What an experience it would be to be up close and personal with a voice like his!
What is your favorite Longhorn Singers event or tradition?
Favorite LHS event is most definitely GUYS NIGHT, but I really do have some fond memories of past LHThanksgivings and banquets, because what could be better than adding food to quality LHS hangouts?
What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
This summer I went out for Tapas for the first time and ended up eating baby eels???
What is on your playlist right now?
My playlist recently has been Penny and Sparrow's newest album and the constant rotation through my favorite operatic baritones singing mostly all of the same standard arias. Currently it's been Giorgio Zancanaro's "Eri tu che macchiavi" and Amartuvshin Enkhbat's "Cortigiani, vil razza". Increasingly, music is swallowing up my life in a new and kind of beautiful way as I become familiar with more and more operatic repertoire and contemporary music. It's all super duper cool.
