Peter Scott Drackley, tenorBorn and raised in Lancaster Pennsylvania, Peter Scott Drackley was introduced to opera at a very young age. Having a mother as a voice teacher and a father as a pianist, he was formed into the young singer he is today. A student of Dr. Phyllis Bryn-Julson and a junior at Peabody Conservatory, Peter was seen in the role of Ferrando with the Peabody Mainstage Opera's production of Cosi fan tutte in 2009. Other performances include Herr K in the Maryland premier of Melissa Shiflett's Dora at Baltimore Theater Project, Guiseppe in the Peabody Mainstage Opera production of La Traviata, and many others. In 2011, Peter received first place in the Opera Lancaster Competition, and received first prize in the district and regional NATS competition. He is also an active performer in the community. Peter performed the role of Gastone in Chesapeake Chamber Opera's production of La Traviata. Peter also performed the role of the Armored Gaurd in the Opera Vivente production of Die Zauberflöte. In October, Peter returned to the Opera Vivente stage to perform the role of Arturo in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor. In December, Peter joined Annapolis Opera in their "Gifts from Grand Opera" concert, where it was said he "used his sweet-toned tenor voice intelligently." An avid recitalist, Peter was seen in January in Arlington, Virginia singing his Lieder recital, "Mozart to Marx: a Recital of Lieder." Peter was most recently seen singing the role of General Kornilov in the World Premier of Joshua Bornfield's politically satirical opera Strong Like Bull.
