Lyric Music & More: November 1
Some voices are truly one of a kind, and tenor Lawrence Brownlee is one of the rare performers who possesses such an instrument.

Start your week off on a high note and get a taste of Brownlee’s magnificent range with this standout performance of Donizetti’s “Ah, mes amis,” from the Lawrence Brownlee and Friends: The Next Chapter virtual concert.
Plus, get to know baritone Joshua Hopkins, learn more about Don Carlos, listen to Chris Reynolds’ new album, and don’t miss the next Beyond the Aria concert.
