Lawrence Brownlee, tenor


He sang with agility, elegance and Rossinian style, tossing off high notes and roulades…this was a winning performance for an increasingly important artist. New York Times

The most in-demand American tenor in the world in the bel canto repertoire, Lawrence Brownlee continues to astonish audiences with the power and agility of his instrument. From firmly American roots, Brownlee has become a star on the international scene, performing opposite the leading ladies of opera and lauded continually for the seemingly effortless beauty of his voice. He has been featured in nearly every major theater in the world and enjoys a relationship with many premier conductors and symphony orchestras, and has also performed recitals at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, Grand Théâtre de Genève in Switzerland, and on London’s Rosenblatt Series.

Cliburn at the Kimbell is generously sponsored by Worthington National Bank.
