Tenors of The Doorway Singers
Brent is our newest tenor, having joined Doorway in 2018! He attended Old Dominion University, where he studied Vocal Performance. He has displayed his vocal talents onstage with The Lyric Opera Virginia, The Virginia Opera, Virginia Chorale, and Virginia Musical Theatre, so you may have seen him as Jean Val Jean in Les Miserables, Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus, or Adam and Noah in Children of Eden. He currently sings as a hired soloist at First Presbyterian Church of Virginia Beach.
Gavin joined Doorway in the summer of 2018. He completed his B.A. in church music and vocal performance at the University of Valley Forge before pursuing his Master’s degree in music education (with a concentration in conducting) at Old Dominion University. He has performed on stage with the Little Theatre of Norfolk and music directed for the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts, where he is currently the Educational Director. Besides Doorway, Gavin's other musical endeavors include being the choral scholar at Christ & St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and directing the Suffolk Center’s Children’s Chorus. He enjoys inspiring people and creating an environment for learning and loving through the arts.
