We are delighted to welcome Sir Bryn Terfel to the Aloud community. It is an honor to have him as our ambassador.
Sir Bryn Terfel is an international Welsh bass-baritone and has performed in all the great opera houses and concert halls of the world. In 2017 he was awarded a knighthood for his services to music.
Last year, the Grammy, Classical Brit and Gramophone Award winner made his role debut as Don Pizarro in Fidelio at the Schloßberg in Graz, Austria. Other opera highlights include the Title Role in Don Pasquale for the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Scarpia in Tosca for ROH and Vienna State Opera, the Title Role in Boris Godunov for Deutsche Oper Berlin and ROH and his house debut at ABAO Bilbao Opera as Holländer in Der fliegende Holländer.
A celebrated recitalist, he is equally renowned for his versatility as a concert performer with highlights ranging from the opening ceremony of the Wales Millennium Centre and BBC Last Night of the Proms to a Gala Concert with Andrea Bocelli in Central Park, New York. For nine years he hosted his own festival in Faenol, North Wales and in December, curated a special Christmas concert for the Metropolitan Opera’s ‘Met Stars Live in Concert’ series which was streamed across the world from Brecon Cathedral, Wales.
