Corey has sung a wide variety of oratorio and opera roles throughout the US, including Ferrando in Cosí fan tutte, Don Curzio and Don Basilio in Le Nozze di Figaro, Goro in Madama Butterfly, and Frantz in Les Contes D’Hoffmann. Corey specializes in Early Music with a special affinity to J.S. Bach. His solo concert performances include The Evangelist in Bach’s St. John Passion, and tenor soloist in Bach’s Magnificat, Christmas Oratorio and many of his cantatas. Other oratorio roles include Ahasuereus in Handel’s Esther, “The Evening” in Telemann’s Die Tageszeiten, tenor soloist in Handel’s Messiah, and Vivaldi’s Dixit Dominus (RV. 807). Newly discovered and neglected works are a special treat for Corey. He recently performed the role of Mordocai in Cristiano Lidarti’s Esther—in Hebrew—as well as the role of The Chamberlain in Gibbons and Locke's Cupid and Death, both with San Francisco Renaissance Voices.

Other appearances include: Tenor Soloist for Mozart's Requiem and Orff’s Carmina Burana with Marin Symphony; The Moor in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Mlada and Charles Edward in Bernstein’s Candide both with the San Francisco Symphony; Tenor Soloist for San Francisco Concert Chorale in Carmina Burana, Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb, and Mozart’s Requiem; Tenor Soloist in Jean Gilles’ Requiem and the role of “He” in William Boyce’s Solomon: A Serenata, both with San Francisco Renaissance Voices; the role of Damon in Handel’s Acis and Galatea with both Marin Baroque and Marin Oratorio; Tenor Soloist in Beethoven’s Mass in C Major with both Master Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra and Viva La Musica; Tenor Soloist in Bach’s B-Minor Mass, Uriel in Haydn’s Creation, and Mozart’s C Minor Mass, all at Stanford University.
