Event Description:
Acclaimed baritone Andrew Garland gives a public master class featuring Swarthmore student singers.

American baritone Andrew Garland has been saluted by The New York Times as having a “distinctly American presence” with a “big voice” who is “an able and comfortable performer, and a sincere one,” and by Opera News as having “coloratura [which] bordered on the phenomenal as he dashed through the music’s intricacies with his warm baritone, offering plenty of elegance and glamour in his smooth acting.” In February 2013, he released his fourth commercial CD: American Portraits on the GPR Label with pianist Donna Loewy. Opera News raved “This collection of four contemporary song cycles by American composers merits repeated listening, for the works themselves as well as for the highly accomplished performances by baritone Andrew Garland and pianist Donna Loewy.”

Engagements on the opera stage during the 2013 - 2014 season include Papageno in The Magic Flute with Boston Lyric Opera and a double bill of Silvio in Pagliacci and Carmina Burana with Hawaii Opera Theatre. Concert performances include Handel’s Messiah with Colorado Bach Ensemble, several concerts with Boston Baroque, as well as recitals across the United States including with the Tuesday Music Club in San Antonio, TX, Lafayette College, and the Cleveland Art Song Festival with Warren Jones. Future seasons include performances with Seattle Opera, among others.

Mr. Garland was heard during the 2012 - 13 season as Schaunard in La Boheme with Seattle Opera, Count Almaviva in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro with Dayton Opera, Dandini in La Cenerentola with Knoxville Opera, and Young Galileo in Galileo Galilei with Cincinnati Opera. He offered several recitals including a new program for the New York Festival of Song, and a return performance to Carnegie Hall in a new program with world-renowned pianist Warren Jones, for which Opera News reported that he “marshaled a truly impressive sound -- warm and virile, dark and solid in its lower ranges but surprisingly sweet in its upper reaches.”

Mr. Garland is the winner of the Lavinia Jensen Competiton, Washington International Music Competition, American Traditions Competition, NATSAA Competition, the William C. Byrd Competition, the Opera Columbus Competition, NATS New England competition and was a prize winner in the Jose Iturbi and Montreal International Music Competitions and McCammon, Gerda Lissner and Palm Beach Opera competitions.

Mr. Garland is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. His teachers and coaches have included Penelope Bitzas, William McGraw, Paulina Stark, Jon Humphrey, Oren Brown, Elizabeth Mannion, Martin Katz, Donna Loewy, Kenneth Griffiths and Terry Lusk.
