Later that year he sang in the American premiere of Lost Objects at the Brooklyn Academy of Music with Concerto Köln, music by David Lang, Julia Wolfe and Michael Gordon. Last season he sang music from Phillip Glass’ Akhnaten in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Minimalist Juke Box Series conducted by John Adams. The LA Times wrote "Among the soloists was the countertenor Daniel Bubeck, who sang Akhanten's 'Hymn to the sun' with exquisite beauty." He has also sung the role of Oberon in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in productions at alma maters, Indiana University and Peabody Conservatory. Upcoming engagements include covering the role of Guido in Handel’s Flavio at New York City Opera, the role of David in Handel’s Saul with the Central Florida Bach Festival and Countertenor Soloist in Orff’s Carmina Burana at the International Music Festival in Prague.
