On the operatic stage Mr. Shirey’s rich baritone has been heard in major roles including those in I Pagliacci, Cavelleria Rusticana, La Boheme, La Traviata, Lucia di Lammermoor, Massenet’s Manon, Madama Butterfly, Carmen, The Merry Widow, Die Fledermaus, The Student Prince and Land of Smiles.  Equally at home in crossover work, Thadd’s Broadway and light opera repertoire includes principal roles in Carousel, Kiss Me Kate, A Little Night Music, Showboat, Man of La Mancha, 1776, Old Man and the Thief, Amahl and the Night Visitors, The Telephone, H.M.S. Pinafore and The Mikado at Philadelphia’s famed Academy of Music.As one reviewer wrote "... the added plus was the coup of obtaining the operatic voice of Thadd Shirey who sings in a voice that sends shivers down the spine..."

          International performances and cruise circuits have brought this engaging baritone to Iceland, Scotland, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Viet Nam and Paris.  He has appeared as guest soloist in the Mozart Requiem, The Brahms Requiem and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.  At home, he has appeared as guest artist at Carnegie Hall, with The New York Grand Opera, the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, The Ocean City Pops, The Kennett Symphony, The Syracuse Symphony and The Orchestra of St. Peter by the Sea.
