About Bennington

Vocalist Tom Bogdan founded the male vocal ensemble Bennington five years ago, named for the Vermont college where the group was formed. It was a campus building with a very favorable acoustics that inspired him to do his first concert with former students, Michael Chinworth and Liam Dailey, as they explored a wide range of music, medieval prayers, doo-wop love songs and new compositions. These concerts were repeated with additional singers from Bennington College and the repertoire grew, always with a focus of spirit, hope, love and prayers. Jim Hodges invited the group to perform at the opening of his 2016 exhibition at Gladstone Gallery, and later at Hodges’ New York performance space Queenslab.

Tom Bogdan has received critical acclaim for performances in opera, oratorio, concert, cabaret and music theater pieces that he has created in New York City. His eclectic repertoire extends from early music to the avant garde and he has sung in the premieres of more than fifty works by contemporary American composers. Bogdan has been a member of Meredith Monk’s Vocal Ensemble since 1991 and a member of the faculty of Bennington College since 1996. Tom first performed with San Francisco native Randall Wong in Meredith Monk’s opera ATLAS in 1991 and is thrilled to invite him perform as a special guest with Bennington here in the amazing space of Grace Cathedral.
