In the press

“…baritone Jordan Shanahan; his performance managed to tread a fine line between boyish eagerness and a more mature sense of vocal dignity. His poetic rendering of “On the beach at night, alone” was a highlight of the evening. Mr. Shanahan’s vocal power and clarity were in ample evidence”
Vaughan-Williams Sea Symphony
at Carnegie Hall Oberon’s Grove
“Saturday’s highlights included baritone Jordan Shanahan, whose voice was like hot coals. “
Verdi Requiem
Richard Scheinin, San Jose Mercury News
“…charismatic baritone Jordan Shanahan, who gave the convicted murderer Joseph de Rocher a completely human complexity that mixed the killer’s darkness with a spiritual spark. His fine baritone voice sounded beautiful or rough in turn when his music called for it, and it was intelligently used throughout, in the service of the drama. The confession scene with Joe and Sister Helen was throat-grabbingly intense; his execution took your breath away.”
Dead Man Walking
Sarah Bryan Miller, Saint Louis Post-Dispatch
“…some standout performances, the most obvious being baritone Jordan Shanahan as Alberich, … Mr. Shanahan’s Alberich is powerfully sung and dramatically convincing.”
Das Rheingold
Chuck Lavazzi, KDHX St. Louis
“…With his rich baritone, Jordan Shanahan proved sympathetic as Rodolfo’s painter friend Marcello.”
La bohème
Jim Lowe, Vermont Times-Argus
“…Baritone Jordan Shanahan certainly has a future in the role of Figaro. Confident and impulsive, the vain “factotum of the city” was suavely portrayed. Shanahan’s giddy “Figaro! Figaro! Figaro! Figaro!” earned both laughs and respect from listeners.”
Il barbiere di Siviglia
Christopher Blank, Go Memphis
“…his warm lyric baritone always has a delicate edge that stays with you… he was a model of musical precision, economy and refinement.”
Pique Dame
Brian Kellow, Opera News
“…Effective and well presented was Jordan Shanahan in the role of a bespectacled student, the Hawaiian baritone sang in a remarkably high range and with beautiful dynamics.” – Translated from the original Italian
Terra
Dario Ascoli, Oltrecultura
“…Honors must go first to Jordan Shanahan. His is not the snarling baritone one frequently hears in this role. He gave instead an exemplary display of bel canto, and his acting (for once he actually looked the same generation as Lucia) was properly bullying and, in the mad scene, tormented by what he saw.”
Lucia di Lammermoor
Alan Montgomery, Opera News
“The role of Enrico, Lucia’s brother and the motivating force that drives the opera, was superbly sung by baritone Jordan Shanahan. He is also a keen actor, and he had delineated his character to make a man once sympathetic and hated. His solos were gorgeously sung, and he was expert in making his ensemble pieces significant parts of the drama.”
Lucia di Lammermoor
Dan Wolfe, Vermont Times-Sentinel
“Jordan Shanahan’s beautiful baritone and aristocratic bearing made his sympathetic Prince Yeletsky into a complete, believable character, and his Act II aria was the highlight of the evening.”
Pique Dame
Sarah Bryan Miller, Saint Louis Post-Dispatch
“As Figaro, handsome baritone Shanahan was clearly the audience favorite. He is a fun-loving, nimble, articulate, charming and charismatic performer who clearly enjoys the role and lights up the stage each time he appears.”
Il barbiere di Siviglia
Keith Kreitman, San Jose Mercury News
“Jordan Shanahan’s powerful baritone and equally strong acting skills bring haunting life to the condemned anti-hero of contemporary composer Jake Heggie’s operatic adaptation of the (nonmusical) film that starred Sean Penn. It’s a truly memorable performance.”
Dead Man Walking
Brad Haynes, Orlando Sentinel
