Astounding American tenor Lawrence Brownlee is an international opera star, but his love for music began with singing in church and listening to artists like Sammy Davis Jr., Johnny Mathis, and Nat King Cole. For this highly personal recital, Brownlee presents affecting songs from his youth that initiated his journey to becoming one of the finest bel canto tenors in the world.

“His soulful singing is naturally phrased, rhythmically alert and sounds like it’s coming straight from his heart to yours.”
“Lawrence Brownlee gave a performance that left no doubt as to why he’s one of the best tenors in the world.”
