Mark Trigg

Mark Trigg, is a baritone from Santa Cruz, California and comes from a diverse musical background. Though his father is a jazz musician, he grew up singing Byzantine chant and Russian choral music in the Eastern Orthodox Church. During this time he participated in liturgical singing seminars and was involved with several recordings, one of which features his own composition of the Cherubic Hymn.

Mark studied music at Cabrillo College where he received high honors and scholarships which allowed him to transfer to the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music to major in Vocal Arts with a minor in Musical Theatre. While at USC, he sang in the Chamber Choir under the direction of Dr. William Dehning, the Concert Choir under the direction of Megan Solomon, the Thornton Collegium Singers, specializing in medieval and renaissance music, as well as the Thornton Jazz Choir.  During his musical career, he has worked with conductor Paul Salamunovich on the Duruflé Requiem and Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, performed with the LA philharmonic at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, and with composer Eric Whitacre on recordings with the USC Concert Choir. In 2003, Mark toured  Germany where he sang in the world premiere of Eric Whitacre’s opera electronica Paradise Lost.

Mark is currently a staff singer at the St. James’ Episcopal Church, Los Angeles, under the direction of James Buonemani, where he has been singing for the past 4 years.  In 2006, this position afforded him with a week-long residency at Westminster Abbey, London. Mark is also a member of and soloist for the Santa Clarita Master Chorale and occasionally performs in local musical theatre productions. Mark is thrilled to be part of the SCCS and to have the wonderful opportunity to work with Simon Carrington.
