Marshall has covered the roles of Hob in Vaughn Williams’ The Poisoned Kiss and Don Ottavio in Mozart’s Don Giovanni with the Bronx Opera Company of New York. Additional operatic roles have included Sam in Kurt Weill’s Street Scene and Peter in George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. He is a two time Rosa Ponselle Opera Competition honorable mention award winner.
