Tenor Omar Mulero is a central Florida native, who as a child, discovered his love for singing and music. While in Florida, he participated in theater productions and started developing his passion for the performing arts. Alongside his musical endeavors, Omar grew up on a quaint farm in the country with his two siblings, tending to a variety of animals. When Omar wasn’t serenading the chickens to the tune of “Giants in the Sky”, you could find him volunteering at a nursing home for the elderly.
With such a rural upbringing, a career in music seemed an impossible feat in itself. But, Omar has never shied away from a challenge, and in 2014 he moved to Hartford, Connecticut to pursue his B.M. in Vocal Performance from The Hartt School. After graduating, Omar moved to Chicago, IL where he attended Roosevelt University for his Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. He actively studies with Mark Crayton and Rebecca Schorch.
Mr. Mulero originally sought out a career in neurosurgery, but he discovered that he could reach people with music in a way that he didn’t ever think possible. He found that through expression and passion, you could reach the souls of your audience and make them feel joy amidst sadness, and excitement amongst indifference. This is part of the driving force of his performances, and Mr. Mulero goes into every performance with the hope that at least one person in the audience will find an escape from daily life.
Most recently, Mr.Mulero performed in a world premier by Daron Hagen entitled “Orson Rehearsed”. This piece was presented by The New Mercury Collective and included the members of Fifth House ensemble. Omar was also part of the Berkshire Opera Festival’s inaugural season, which under the direction of Jonathon Loy, presented Madama Butterfly at the Colonial Theater in Massachusetts.
