Athlone Artists has announced that tenor Orson Van Gay II and soprano Ashley Galvani Bell have joined the roster for representation.

Van Gay is a Los Angeles Native who has performed with such companies as Pacific Opera Project, Piedmont Opera, Angels Vocal Art, and Pocket Opera, among others.

Meanwhile Bell has appeared with such organizations as ABAO Bilbao Opera, Teatro Maestranza, Orchestra UNIMI,  The Music Hall in Portsmouth, Opera New Jersey, and Daytona Beach Symphony, among others.

“From the moment I heard him sing, I was struck by the elegant and clarion nature of Orson’s tenor voice. I knew immediately I wanted to work with this brilliant artist,” said Athlone Artist President and Founder Miguel Rodríguez in an official press statement issued by the company.“Meanwhile, Ashley Bell has one of those voices that was born to sing the full lyric soprano repertoire. Her voice has a full, warm-honeyed tone throughout the entire range of the voice and a unique beauty that makes you want to hear more.” We’re delighted to share with you these brilliant artists and their personal journeys toward the operatic stage.
