Lieder with the American bass, Sir Willard White

It took a one-way ticket to New York for Sir Willard White to make the first step from a poor childhood in Kingston, Jamaica, to a life as a world-famous opera singer. White counts Nat King Cole, folk music and the radio as sources of inspiration in his childhood and adolescence. His talent was revealed to the surrounding world at Jamaica\’s conservatory – which was also when the said ticket was purchased by his father.

White studied at Julliard and made his debut in New York at the age of 25. He has since sung at all major opera stages in the world. White has maintained a certain inquisitiveness into more uncommon musical territories side by side with his opera repertoire – and there will be plenty of hints at his childhood imbibed in American folk songs in Mogens Dahl Concert Hall\’s Lied Programme.
