TOBY VAUGHN KIDD received his B.M. and M.M. degrees in Vocal Performance from Northern Arizona University, under the vocal instruction of Dr. Judith Cloud. As a student, he performed regularly in both solo and ensemble settings and founded a Student NATS chapter, serving as president for two years.
Since making his professional debut as a concert soloist with Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra in their performance of Bach’s Mass in B Minor, Toby has regularly been sought after as a vocalist throughout the Southwest and remains active in arts leadership and higher education.
Toby is involved with many organizations, notably Arizona Opera Chorus, ArtSong Rising, Helios: a modern renaissance (where he is a founding artist and board member), and is thrilled to return for his 7th season with the Phoenix Chorale. Notable recordings include the 2015 Grammy award-winning Rachmaninoff: All-Night Vigil (soloist) and Nils Lofgren’s 2019 album Blue with Lou (backup vocalist).
