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 Glimmerglass Opera, Opera Saratoga, Sarasota Opera, Amarillo Opera, and Opera North.  On the concert stage, he has sung as a soloist with the Utah Symphony, Boston Baroque, Charlotte Symphony, Boston Pops, Albany Symphony, Rhode Island Philharmonic, and Musica Sacra, with whom he made his company debut in a performance of Messiah at Carnegie Hall.  In 2016, Lawrence sang the role of Consigliere in Stradella’s SAN GIOVANNI BATTISTA with Haymarket Opera of Chicago, and this season he reprised his role in performances at the Valletta International Baroque Festival in Malta.  His concert engagements this 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, a program of Bach Cantatas with American Classical Orchestra, and his debut at Alice Tully Hall as tenor soloist in Schubert’s Mass in E-Flat with the Riverside Choral Society.
