This role is not Forsythe's first role in an opera. He has sung in other opera productions in both Nashville and Knoxville. He sings in the Madrigalians, a musical ensemble at Trevecca, and he is a section leader in the choir at First Lutheran Church in Nashviille.
Following his graduation in May 2005, Forsythe would like to do graduate work in opera. While a career in opera is certainly a possibility, Forsythe also has an interest in a ministry career--perhaps in missions.
Fosythe is the son of Chuck and Melanie Forsythe and is a graduate of Dade County High School.
