Last season, baritone John Brancy swept the Music Monday crowd to its feet with his spot on interpretations of Lieder and Rodgers’ “Soliloquy.” The baritone also displayed his ample voice as a countertenor and amazed everyone in the sold-out audience. But we’re not the only ones raving.
The New York Times said Brancy is, “a vibrant, resonant presence…dashing, strong voiced.” And Marilyn Horne told us we had to hire him while we could still afford him.
John has appeared with major orchestras and opera companies from Canada and the U.S. to Europe. He’s a winner of the Sullivan Foundation Grand Prize and career grants, 1st Prize at the Classical Singer Magazine's Singer Competition, and he won the Gold Award for Voice at the YoungArts Foundation competition.
A charming, witty, smart speaker, John Brancy is one of today’s leading young baritones and we’re thrilled to have him returning to SILL in 2017.
