One of the world’s leading bel canto tenors, American-born Lawrence Brownlee has garnered acclaim singing a wide range of roles from opera to contemporary music and jazz to spirituals. Brownlee comes to the Armory for a progressive concert performed in multiple historic period rooms. The evening begins in the Board of Officers Room with a recital of lieder and art songs and continues in the Veterans Room with jazz standards and American spirituals. Joined by Myra Huang and Jason Moran on piano, the program showcases the singer’s vocal artistry and explores spiritual and jazz influences from the American South in contemporary music.
