Gungarri Baritone, Don Bemrose is cementing himself as one of Australia’s leading male opera singers creating strong Aboriginal male operatic roles in three new Australian Opera's with a fourth in development. 

Much of Don’s success can be attributed to an amazing family who have educated him culturally, spiritually, and emotional, creating a ferocious curiosity to explore this amazing planet and connect with all. Don’s grandmother, talented Author and respected Elder, Dr Ruth Hegarty and Gungarri Tenor, Harold Blair inspired in Don a passion for singing and classical music. After achieving his childhood dream and becoming the first Indigenous opera sing to perform for Opera Australia, 2013 saw Don move to our national capital where he lives with his wonderful partner. 

Don graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music Performance from the Victorian College of Arts, University of Melbourne further honing his craft and training his lyric baritone voice with Vocal Teacher, Raymond Connell.

Don recognises it is his path to take his passion for classical music and the operatic voice and infuses it with his strong cultural heritage and positive thinking to educate, inspire and entertain.
