Lawrence Brownlee, tenor with Laura Ward, piano
Lawrence Brownlee, tenor, will peform with Laura Ward and will also conduct a master class.
Blair is pleased to welcome one of the world’s preeminent bel canto tenors, Lawrence Brownlee, who has captivated audiences and critics around the world. His voice, praised by NPR as “an instrument of great beauty and expression…perfectly suited to the early 19th-century operas of Rossini and Donizetti,” has brought him to the top of opera world, ushering in “a new golden age in high male voices” (The New York Times). His most recent recording of Virtuoso Rossini Arias was nominated for a Grammy, and prompted New Yorker critic Alex Ross to ask, “is there a finer Rossini tenor than Lawrence Brownlee?”
Brownlee will also conduct a master class with Blair voice majors from 1:00pm-2:30pm, Thursday, March 17, in Steve & Judy Turner Recital Hall. Participation in the class is limited to Blair performance majors by audition, but the public is welcome to attend and observe.
Sponsored by the Mary Cortner Ragland Master Series Fund and presented with gratitude to the parents of a Blair School student for their generous support.
This event is free and open to the public. Parking for this event is available for free in West Garage (2500 Children’s Way) through the Children’s Way entrance.
