Clarence Frazer


Canadian-Korean baritone Clarence Frazer brings his “silky-smooth” voice to a wide range of roles and concert repertoire: “Frazer is so naturally gifted, he can walk into any role and make it sound like it was meant for him to sing” ( An alumnus of the Canadian Opera Company’s prestigious Ensemble Studio and Calgary Opera’s McPhee Artist Development Program, Clarence starred as Figaro with Pacific Opera Victoria and Saskatoon Opera in The Barber of Seville. In 2019, he sang Marcello in Against the Grain Theatre’s acclaimed production of La Bohème, touring from Yukon to Toronto.

This season, Clarence debuts with the Vancouver Bach Choir, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra in performances of Messiah. He performs with Chorus Niagara in The Houses Stand Not Far Apart (Estacio) and Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem. Recent concert engagements include Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem with Hamilton’s Bach Elgar Choir, and Mozart’s Requiem with the Grand Philharmonic Choir (Kitchener).

Clarence sang Guglielmo in Edmonton Opera’s Così fan tutte and starred as Claudio with Opera Kelowna in Béatrice et Bénédict. In 2023, he debuts as Demetrius with Vancouver Opera in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and with the Ottawa Choral Society in Lucija Garuta’s epic cantata.

Clarence is featured in several OperaBreaks videos directed by François Racine and produced by Domoney Artists during the pandemic.
