Lawrence Brownlee is a leading figure in opera, both as a singer on the world's top stages, and as a voice for activism and diversity in the industry. Captivating audiences and critics around the globe, he has been hailed as “an international star in the bel canto operatic repertory” (The New York Times), “one of the world’s leading bel canto stars” (The Guardian).

Pianist Myra Huang accompanies Mr. Brownlee for this concert. Acclaimed by Opera News as being “among the top accompanists of her generation,” and “...a colouristic tour de force” by The New York Times, Grammy® Award-nominated pianist Myra Huang performs in recitals and chamber music concerts around the world. Huang is the Head of Music of The Lindemann Young Artist Development Program at The Metropolitan Opera. She has also served on the music staffs of the Washington National Opera, Houston Grand Opera, New York City Opera, and The Palau De Les Arts in Valencia, Spain.
