Event Details

As part of its upcoming 35th season, Cecilia Concerts presents the Grammy Award-nominated tenor Lawrence Brownlee in concert on March 16, 2024.

The legendary opera star will perform a special selection of beloved operatic arias along with a culturally-rooted program of works for voice and piano from a new project entitled “Rising,” for which he has commissioned six of today’s leading African-American composers to set poetry from the Harlem Renaissance to song. The compositions will revolve around themes of joy, empowerment, faith, love, and strength in the face of challenge.
