"Perhaps the finest was the tenor Brian Giebler’s aria, “Erwäge” (“Consider”), rendered with lovely tone and deep expressivity."
This season, Mr. Giebler makes his début with Santa Fe Pro Musica, the National Cathedral Choral Society, Handel's Messiah with both the Naples Philharmonic and the Oratorio Society of New York (Carnegie Hall), and as Adam in the New York premiere of Julian Wachner and Cerise Jacobs’ opera, REV. 23, at the Prototype Festival in January, 2020.
Praised for his “lovely tone and deep expressivity” by the New York Times, American tenor
Brian Giebler has established an impressive career singing virtuosic and eclectic repertoire “with shine and clarity” (Opera News). Whether performing Handel’s Semele with Harry Bicket and The English Concert or Stravinsky’s Threni with Franz Welser-Möst and The Cleveland Orchestra, "Brian Giebler use[s] his high-placed tenor with great skill” (Opera Magazine). His debut solo album titled A Lad's Love, featuring music by Ivor Gurney and Benjamin Britten, will be released on Bridge Records in the summer of 2020. “The sweetness of Giebler's impressive high tenor” and his "expressive and elegant phrasing" (Cleveland Classical) have been heard recently with Boston Baroque, Boston Early Music Festival, Grand Rapids Symphony, Virginia Symphony Orchestra, Naples Philharmonic, Syracuse Symphoria, Mark Morris Dance Group, TENET, Apollo’s Fire, Handel & Haydn Society, the Oratorio Society of New York (Handel’s Messiah at Carnegie Hall), and regularly with the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, among others. Mr. Giebler has won awards at the Bethlehem Bach and American Traditions Competitions, and took second-place in the 2018 Lyndon Woodside Oratorio-Solo Competition at Carnegie Hall. Dedicated to the changing landscape of new music, Mr. Giebler frequently collaborates with prominent living composers such as Paola Prestini, Julian Wachner (Adam in REV 23 presented by the Prototype Festival), Charles Wuorinen (Iff the Water Genie in Haroun and the Sea of Stories with Boston Modern Orchestra Project), and Ian Venables. An active crossover artist, “the dashing Giebler, whose voice would make anyone melt” (BroadwayWorld), received critical acclaim and a Gregory Award nomination for his “faultless high tenor” (Seattle Times) in the role of Marius in Les Misérables (Seattle, WA). In 2018, Mr. Giebler revisited the role of Jack in Into the Woods with Charlottesville Opera, where he was lauded for "his spotless tenor vocals (that were) a highlight of the production" (BroadwayWorld).
