In David Holloway’s case, the student has truly become the master. The opera singer and educator is now in his ninth year as director of Santa Fe Opera’s apprentice singers program — a program he participated in back in the 1960s.

“It was a long road from 1966 and ’67 to 2005, when I became director of the program,” Holloway told Pasatiempo. The baritone’s career in the intervening years serves to illustrate the training program’s success. He performed lead roles at the Metropolitan Opera and the New York City Opera and spent many years singing professionally in Europe — including a stint as lead baritone at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf. He retired from the faculty of the Chicago College of Performing Arts in May. This is not to say that Holloway is slowing down in his emeritus years. In fact, he still commutes to the opera campus by bicycle every day from his South Capitol home.
