Brian Giebler, tenor

Garnering praise for his “most impressive… bright, clear tone and lively personality” (New York Times), American tenor Brian Giebler is a “faultless high tenor” (Seattle Times) with “lovely tone and deep expressivity” (New York Times). From Evangelist in Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with the GRAMMY®-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street under Julian Wachner to Stravinsky with The Cleveland Orchestra under Franz Welser-Möst, “the sweetness of Giebler's impressive high tenor” and his "expressive and elegant phrasing" (Cleveland Classical) has captivated audiences around the country. He has been a soloist with The Cleveland Orchestra (Severance Hall); Virginia Symphony Orchestra; Syracuse Symphoria; American Classical Orchestra (Lincoln Center); New York City Chamber Orchestra (Carnegie Hall); Handel & Hadyn Society (Jordan Hall); Mark Morris Dance Group (Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival); Clarion Music Society; Trinity Baroque Orchestra; and the Oregon, Baldwin Wallace, Carmel, and Victoria Bach Festivals. 

While his light lyric tenor lends itself best to the music of Bach, Handel, Mozart (and the like), he has found another niche fleshing out roles in new works by prominent modern-day composers such as Paola Prestini, Martin Bresnick, Julian Wachner, William Antoniou (Anathema: The Turing Opera – National Sawdust), and James Dashow. Mr. Giebler took 2nd Place (Stanley C. Meyerson Award) in the 2018 Lyndon Woodside Oratorio-Solo Competition at Carnegie Hall, won the Richard Chambless People’s Choice Award at the 2018 American Traditions Vocal Competition, and was a prize winner at the 2016 Biennial Bach Vocal Competition sponsored by the American Bach Society. Later this year, he will make his solo debuts with the Boston Early Music Festival, Musica Sacra (Carnegie Hall, Handel's Messiah), Grand Rapids Symphony, and The English Concert, touring Handel's Semele under Harry Bicket.
