Raised in a musical family, the tenor Gevorg Aperánts (1986) has been singing and performing since he was nine years old. As a child, he was a frequent competitor and winner at many festivals. He started his classical singing lessons in 1999 in IVAK Delfzijl with Nanny ter Wiel. From 2004 - 2005 he continued his studies at the Noord Nederlands Conservatorium (current Prince Claus Conservatorium) where he was taught by Jan van Zelm and Gerda van Zelm. From 2005 to 2006 Gevorg took private lessons with Jitske Steendam and from 2007 to 2009 he studied at the ArtEZ Conservatory in Zwolle with Felix Schoonenboom.

In the ArtEZ Conservatory of Zwolle Gevorg also took Jazz/Pop Vocal lessons from Ronald Douglas. From a young age, Gevorg was not only interested in Classical Music but also Traditional Music from different parts of the world. He enjoyed following the sessions of Non-Western-Music taught by Annette Kruisbrink. 

From 2009 to 2012 Gevorg studied Classical Vocal Music at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Pierre Mak. He finished his Masters at the Dutch National Opera Academy with voice instruction from Raymond Modesti and Ira Siff. Besides his studies, Gevorg also took masterclasses with Nelly Miricioiu (soprano), David Parry (conductor), Ruggero Raimondi (bass-baritone), Dennis O'Neill (tenor) and William Matteuzzi (tenor).

After his studies, Gevorg started his career at the State Opera of Hanover and worked there from 2013 till 2017. He was part of the 'Junge Oper Hannover' in the season 2013/2014 and from the summer of 2014 he was part of the ensemble of the 'Staatsoper Hannover'. During his engagement in Hanover he was part of productions such as ''Tosca'', ''Un Ballo In Maschera'', ''La Traviata'', ''La Forza Del Destino'', ''Candide'', ''Le Nozze Di Figaro'', ''Rigoletto'' and many others. His repertoire varies from Old Music to Modern Music. He feels at home not only in the field of the Classical Music but also in Jazz and Musical Theatre.
