Named one of NPR’s Favorite New Artists of 2011, Nicholas Phan continues to distinguish himself as one of the most compelling young tenors appearing on the prestigious concert and opera stages of the world today.

An avid proponent of vocal chamber music, Phan has collaborated with pianists Mitsuko Uchida, Richard Goode, Jeremy Denk, Gilbert Kalish and the Miró Quartet, among others.

Inspired by Britten

Known for his dedication to the vocal works of Benjamin Britten, Phan will open Fontana’s Acts of Creation: A Celebration of Benjamin Britten for the 2013-2014 season.

“What I love about Britten as a composer is that he never, ever underestimates his audience,” [said Phan in the Boston Globe]. “He trusted his incredibly sophisticated compositional style’s ability to touch people’s hearts in the most deeply moving ways.”

His first solo album, “Winter Words,” made many “Best of 2011” lists including those of the New York Times, The New Yorker, Time Out New York, the Boston Globe and the Toronto Star.

Join us as we begin our celebration of the life and works of Benjamin Britten!
