Crossover Artist George Komsky who's following the footsteps of the Three Tenors, Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti is expected to deliver a stunning performance at the G.O.D. Awards
Ukrainian-American tenor George Komsky is a protégé and scholarship beneficiary of world-renowned vocal teacher Seth Riggs, whose star pupils include Barbra Streisand, Josh Groban and Natalie Cole.
At an early age, Komsky was inspired by the beauty of the Bel Canto singing style immortalized by the great Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Tito Schipa. He started his vocal training at age 11 when his grandfather encouraged him to study with the local Cantor. Years of vocal training followed along with a trip to Italy in 2001 to perform Verdi’s Requiem at St. Paul’s Basilica in Rome.
In 2003, he secured a much sought after place in UCLA’s esteemed opera program. While in college, he worked with David Romano, the celebrated tenor from Broadway’s The Phantom of the Opera, whose tutelage allowed him to become the lead soloist for the internationally acclaimed Irish dancing phenomenon Riverdance in 2004 for its North American tour.
After graduation, Komsky starred in Dublin Worldwide Productions Twelve Irish Tenors and once again toured the US before returning to Los Angeles to further his vocal training. He was also a semi-finalist in the inaugural season of the hit TV series America’s Got Talent. After performing his rendition of the pop opera classic Caruso, lead show judge Piers Morgan commented, “You are without a doubt, the finest adult singer in this competition.”
Today, Komsky frequently tours across the United States and Europe, and continues to build his fan base, both domestically and internationally. He has performed in the US and abroad with Grammy Award-winning jazz trumpeter Chris Botti, with recent engagements in San Francisco, Napa, Tarrytown, NY, and the prestigious Blue Note Jazz Club in NYC. He touched audiences with his rendition of the National Anthem on NBC’s Sunday Night Football on Sunday, December 16th, which aired to over 20 million television viewers.
