An instrument of great beauty and expression.

Lawrence Brownlee has been a regular at the Metropolitan Opera, Teatro alla Scala, and the Royal Opera House—and now, back by popular demand, at Princeton University Concerts. His voice—“an instrument of great beauty and expression” (NPR Music)—has been as celebrated for its power on the world’s greatest opera stages as it has been for its leadership within conversations about activism and diversity within classical music. The captivating tenor combines both talents into a new song cycle championing black writers and composers, presenting texts drawn from the Harlem Renaissance set to music by today’s premiere composers including Carlos Simon, Shann Ohkpeblo, Damien Sneed, and Princeton University’s own Jessie Montgomery.
