Baritone Lucas Meachem

Baritone Lucas Meachem didn’t take the traditional path to his successful opera career. He transferred schools three different times during his undergraduate years. He landed his first professional gig after tagging along with a friend to two YAP auditions. And he decided to accept a fellowship with a prestigious opera company rather than finish his degree. Now, with upcoming engagements around the world, Meachem says he has no regrets. He took the best opportunities available to him—and the opportunities keep coming.
