Winner of the 2006 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award and the Verbier Festival Academy's 2008 Prix d'Honneur, Canadian baritone Joshua Hopkins has been hailed for his virile and vigorous yet velvety sound and an immediately evident dramatic authority. He has performed a wide range of operatic repertoire for The Metropolitan Opera as well as Dallas Opera, Glyndebourne, Houston Grand Opera, New York City Opera, and Santa Fe Opera, and his symphonic collaborations have included The Cleveland Orchestra, Houston Symphony, Orchestra of St. Luke's, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and Les Violons du Roy. Mr. Hopkins is committed to the art of song, giving solo recitals at New York's Carnegie Hall and under the auspices of the Marilyn Horne Foundation, Gilmore Festival, Toronto's Aldeburgh Connection, and Vancouver Recital Society. He gave the world premiere of Michael Tilson Thomas's Rilke Songs at Carnegie Hall and released Let Beauty Awake - featuring songs by Barber, Bowles, Glick, and Vaughan Williams - on the ATMA Classique label.
