Thomas Glenn


After singing the title role in Leonard Bernstein’s Candide with Oakland Symphony in 2015, Grammy Award winning tenor Thomas Glenn is once again thrilled to return this season to Oakland Symphony to perform as tenor soloist in G. Rossini’s Stabat Mater.

Glenn has performed at major opera companies including San Francisco Opera, The Metropolitan Opera, The Lyric Opera of Chicago, Netherlands Opera, the Canadian Opera Company, and The English National Opera, among others.

He has also performed with major orchestras including the Atlanta Symphony, The Cleveland Orchestra, the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada, China National Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Berkeley Symphony and Oakland Symphony.

East Bay audiences have heard Glenn most recently at Hertz hall in Berkeley as the Shepherd in Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex with the Philharmonia Orchestra of London under the baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen.

This year, Glenn sings the role of Charles Mair in the opera Louis Riel, by Harry Somers, in three productions – with Canadian Opera Company, the National Arts Center of Canada and Festival d’Opéra de Québec. He will also sing the role of Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore with Opera Idaho and the tenor soloist in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with the Victoria Choral Society in Victoria, BC.
