“An international star in the bel canto operatic repertory” – The New York Times
Captivating audiences and critics around the globe, tenor Lawrence Brownlee has emerged as a pivotal voice for activism and diversity in the performing arts. Hailed as “one of the most in-demand opera singers in the world today” (NPR), Brownlee celebrates Black composers and writers with text drawn from the Harlem Renaissance in his newest recital program, Rising.

Rising will feature Brownlee and pianist Kevin J. Miller performing newly commissioned songs by composers Shawn Okpebholo, Damien Sneed, Joel Thompson, and others with texts drawn from James Weldon Johnson and other great Black writers of the Harlem Renaissance.
