Lawrence Jones

LJTenor Lawrence Jones has established an active presence on the concert and operatic stages.  He has received praise for his portrayals of Tom Rakewell in Stravinsky’s THE RAKE’S PROGRESS at the Princeton and Aldeburgh Festivals.  The New York Times wrote, “Tenor Lawrence Jones brought a light, sweet voice and lyricism to Tom.”   Opera News praised him for his “clean, ringing tenor,” and The Guardian described him as “a smooth-voiced Tom….his first-act aria, lamenting the loss of love, is especially affecting”.

Mr. Jones has performed roles with companies such as New York City Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, Opera Saratoga, Sarasota Opera, Amarillo Opera.  On the concert stage, he has sung as a soloist with Musica Sacra, Boston Baroque, Boston Pops, Albany Symphony, Charlotte Symphony, Rhode Island Philharmonic, and the Utah Symphony, with whom he made his company debut in Stravinsky’s Pulcinella.

Most recently, Lawrence sang as a soloist in performances of Messiah at Carnegie Hall with the Oratorio Society of New York, and at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue with the Saint Thomas Choir, for which the New York Times called him “an impressive tenor”.  In 2016, Lawrence sang the role of Consigliere in Stradella’s San Giovanni Battista with Haymarket Opera of Chicago, and this past season he reprised his role in performances at the Valletta International Baroque Festival in Malta.  His concert engagements last season include the role of the Evangelist in C.P.E. Bach’s St. John Passion with the Saint Thomas Choir and New York Baroque Incorporated, and a program of Bach Cantatas with American Classical Orchestra.  He made his debut at Alice Tully Hall in Schubert’s Mass in E-Flat with the Riverside Choral Society.  This season he sings in Mozart’s Requiem and Mendelssohn’s Christus with the Back Bay Chorale and Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 with Voices of Ascension.
