Grammy-Award winning bass-baritone Eric Owens has catapulted into the American consciousness after triumphant operatic and solo performances with the Metropolitan and other premier opera companies and the nation’s top symphony orchestras. Owens’ power- ful poise, expansive voice and inventive artistry have earned him a place among the most celebrated voices in both classical and contemporary vocal performance. Owens will perform a recital of lieder, art songs and more at Amherst.
