As a baritone, Alex’s rise in the musical world has been gradual, steady and measured. To be sure, he expects to continue his gradual career trajectory, counting on the time which is required for the maturation of his voice and artistry. Yet the Fellowship term also signaled his entry into a series of increasingly valuable artistic and professional experiences that will build on the foundations he established during his four-year artistic residency at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia and his membership in the studio ensemble of Theater Basel in Basel, Switzerland. In fall 2013, Alex moved to Zurich to join the ensemble of the Zurich Opera. He returned to the renowned Glimmerglass Festival in July 2013 to sing the title role in Verdi’s King for a Day. In 2014, he was one of forty opera singers worldwide who was invited to participate in the annual Operalia competition, founded by Placido Domingo. He is set to play Figaro in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro for Vancouver Opera. For more information on Alex Lawrence, click here.
