Christopher Lowrey has now established himself in the top flight of young countertenors on both the opera stage and concert platform.
In the American school, but with a British accent, he balances the best elements of these diverse traditions, merging directness of expression and beauty of tone with precision and agility. Now regularly working alongside many of the world’s leading opera houses, orchestras, and festivals, his career takes him throughout Europe, the USA, and Australasia. Christopher sings with a wide range of distinguished companies around the world, including Royal Opera House, Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Philharmonie de Paris, BBC Proms, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, and his upcoming debut at The Metropolitan Opera.
"Astonishment, uncomprehending terror, rage, and guilt rose and crashed over in mounting waves. The technique was a marvel, and then the listener forgot about it, swept up in the emotional tide."
– SAN FRANCISCO CLASSICAL VOICE
"As David, the American countertenor Christopher Lowrey is gloriously plausible. Whomever falls for him could be doing so because of his honeyed, seductive voice or because of his honeyed, seductive presence."
– STAGE NOISE
"Lowrey sings with textual and emotional clarity, almost crystalline transparency, but his expressive vibrato and natural feel for rubato create a sophisticated final line. He, too, has remarkable facility with the trills and flourishes common in this music."
