Community Music School is thrilled to announce that acclaimed tenor vocalist Brian Cheney will join its faculty, teaching private voice lessons to students aged high school through adult beginning in the school’s summer term (June 21st, 2021).
Hailed by KUSC Los Angeles as the “next great tenor,” Brian Cheney, protégé of legendary tenor Jerry Hadley, has gained impressive recognition for his appearances in major operas around the world. His versatility is showcased in the range of performances presented in a recent season: Victor Frankenstein in three sold-out performances of Gregg Kallor’s World Premiere of Frankenstein in NYC, a debut with the National Philharmonic as tenor soloist in a concert celebrating the music of Leonard Bernstein, Verdi’s Requiem with Southern Illinois Symphony, and featured soloist in “Salute to Vienna” Concerts in Chicago, Boston and Hartford. In that same season, he performed as tenor soloist in Pulcinella with Opera Orlando, and Antonin Scalia in Derrick Wang’s Scalia/Ginsburg with Opera Delaware.
As excellent a teacher as he is a performer, Brian’s energetic, positive, and encouraging teaching style enables students to develop and reach their highest potential, in any musical style.
