Robert White

Robert White

Debuting as a boy of 6, Robert White exemplifies the principle that vocal longevity stems from a great technique. Coming from a musical family (his father was on of the greatest Irish tenors of the early 20th century), tenor Robert White has made a career charming audiences with his beautiful voice, musical versatility and a stage presence and musicality that's won him accolades all over the world. On his punningly titled CD, "Berlin Lieder," he offers 26 songs by Irving Berlin with Marilyn Horne and Dick Hyman. A favorite of Princess Grace, his multi-disc set that contains some of the greatest songs ever written, from Handel to Gershwin, is a treasure trove of great singing and great music.

The March 2002 issue of Opera News, looking for the person on whom the mantle of John McCormack might justly rest, answered, "The connection between Robert White and McCormack is plain for all to hear."
