Event description

Description

Tenor and Bass-Baritone

Named 2017 “Male Singer of the Year” by both the International Opera Awards and Bachtrack, Lawrence Brownlee has been hailed by the Associated Press as one of “the world’s leading bel canto tenors.” Brownlee also serves as Artistic Advisor at Opera Philadelphia, helping the company to expand their repertoire, diversity efforts and community initiatives.

Bass-baritone Eric Owens has a unique reputation as an esteemed interpreter of classic works and a champion of new music. He has been recognized with multiple honors, including the Musical America’s 2017 “Vocalist of the Year” award.


Creative Matters series

This event is co-sponsored by Hancher and the Creative Matters lecture series, with sponsorship from the UI Office of Research and Economic Development in collaboration with the UI Arts Advancement Committee. A Q&A session will follow their talk. The event is free and open to the public.

The Creative Matters lecture series, launched in Fall 2015, seeks to demonstrate that creativity and innovation are not only at the core of all research and discovery, but also central to our human experience. Our lineup of speakers includes artists, thinkers, builders, and doers who challenge conventional thinking about creativity, science, and artistic expression, and borrow from a range of influences and disciplines in their work.

Brownlee and Owens will perform together on the Hancher stage on Friday, March 8. Tickets are available through the Hancher Box Office.


Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Leslie Revaux at leslie-revaux@uiowa.edu in advance of the event.
