About the Artists

Curtis on Tour
The Nina von Maltzahn Global Touring Initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music

Four emerging professional artists join celebrated bass-baritone Eric Owens to share the stage with their mentor, himself a 1995 Curtis Institute of Music alumnus and now their alma mater’s director of vocal studies and Curtis Opera Theatre.

Equally at home in orchestral, recital, and operatic repertoire, Mr. Owens has deployed his commanding poise, expansive voice, and instinctive acting faculties to triumph in performances around the world. “Owens has an opera singer’s ability to conceive of each song as an expression from an individual person. Within the compass of his deep, rich tone lies a reserve of gentleness as well as power” (Opera News).

“Mr. Owens quickly established his ability to wrap his deep voice around a text and create a distinct sense of character” (The New York Times).
