Brian Giebler

    Praised for his “lovely tone and deep expressivity” by The New York Times, GRAMMY® nominated tenor Brian Giebler radiates “shine and clarity” (Opera News) in every phrase using “his high-placed tenor with great skill” (Opera Magazine). His debut solo album a lad’s love (Bridge Records, 2020) garnered high praise from significant industry publications including Gramophone, Opera News (Critics Choice), and San Francisco Classical Voice, debuted on the Billboard charts, and earned him his first GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album.
    Highlights of Mr. Giebler’s 2023-24 season include singing Handel Messiah with the Seoul Metropolitan Chorus in South Korea, Purcell Dido and Aeneas (Aeneas) with Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, and reprising the role of Matthew Shepard in Considering Matthew Shepard with Spire Chamber Ensemble. He makes return appearances with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra (Orff Carmina Burana), Grand Rapids Symphony (Dan Forrest Requiem), True Concord Voices & Orchestra (Evangelist, Bach St. John Passion), and the Clarion Music Society singing Bach B-Minor Mass.
    “The sweetness of Giebler’s impressive high tenor” and his “expressive and elegant phrasing” (Cleveland Classical) have been heard as Apollo in Handel’s Semele with The English Concert and The Clarion Choir in an international tour under Harry Bicket at the Theatre des Champs-Elysées (Paris), the Barbican (London), and Carnegie Hall (New York); as Adam in REV 23 at the Prototype Festival (dir. James Darrah; cond.
