Lawrence Brownlee and Friends: The Next Chapter

Lawrence Brownlee and Friends: The Next Chapter

Show Information

Lyric’s Ryan Opera Center presents a free virtual concert celebrating the depth and breadth of Black artistry, hosted by world-renowned tenor Lawrence Brownlee, who also serves as artistic advisor for the event.

The concert will also feature prominent Ryan Opera Center alumni — soprano Whitney Morrison, mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges, and baritone Will Liverman — and three current 2020/21 Ryan Opera Center Ensemble members — tenors Martin Luther Clark and Lunga Eric Hallam, and baritone Leroy Davis.

Performances will be accompanied by Craig Terry, the Grammy-Award winning music director of the Ryan Opera Center, and Chris Reynolds, current Ensemble pianist. Members of the Lyric Opera Orchestra will also appear in a selection alongside J’Nai Bridges, performing from their homes.

Each of the performers has selected some of their favorite repertoire to share, resulting in a dynamic combination of arias, songs, and spirituals, showcasing the virtuosic range of the artists.

The event title recognizes the event as an expanded “next chapter” to a wonderfully successful, sold-out community concert event that was held in Fall 2019.

Stream the performance live on Lyric’s YouTube and Facebook channels on Sunday, July 26 at 6:00 PM CDT.
