He sang with agility, elegance, and Rossinian style, tossing off high notes and roulades…this was a winning performance for an increasingly important artist.” — The New York Times
Known as one of the world’s leading bel canto tenors, American-born Lawrence Brownlee has captivated audiences and critics alike with a wide range of roles from opera to contemporary music and jazz. The acclaimed singer comes to the Armory for a progressive concert that bridges multiple historic period rooms. The evening begins in the Board of Officers Room with a recital of lieder and art songs and continues in the Veterans Room with jazz standards and American spirituals, both designed to showcase his unique vocal artistry as well as the ambience of the spaces in which it is showcased.
