Praised in Opera News as “a gentle actor and elegant musician” and in The Wall Street Journal for his “mellifluous baritone,” vocalist Justin Austin is quickly making a name for himself on opera, oratorio, musical theatre, and concert stages around the United States and Europe.
He has appeared in Fire Shut Up in My Bones, Treemonisha, and the musical adaptation of Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel. In concert, he is a featured vocalist in Our Song, Our Story, Damien Sneed’s touring recital program that pays tribute to the artistry of Black composers past and present.
Austin’s beautifully “burnished” (The New York Times) baritone voice and compelling stage presence make this recital a can’t-miss Boston debut from a young artist who is rapidly scaling the heights of the operatic world.
“Vocally impressive, verbally elegant, and duly seductive ”Opera News
