Masterclass with David Lee Brewer

“Don’t dream your life. Live your dream” David Lee Brewer

The tenor David Lee Brewer, born in the United States in 1963 as the grandson of vaudeville performers, began building his opera career before he had left his teen years. His career has taken him to every corner of the world, from Iowa to China, and has been anything but conventional. Brewer’s performances are informed by his passion for teaching. In 2004, he founded Brewer Inter national with this purpose: To find, develop, and deliver the most exciting vocal talents to the professional world of music and performance. 

In this masterclass, David Lee Brewer focuses mainly on opera and musical theatre interpretation and will work with singers on technique, expression and presentation. 

“The voice is an instrument of speech, but it is also used in song. As my pupils’ mentor and teacher I am concerned not only about the application of technical and musical knowledge, but also about the student’s holistic personality.”

All singers may apply for this masterclass but we strongly recommend signing up quickly as active spaces are limited. To be considered for active participation, you will need to send us a short bio and two video links to stating which masterclass you wish to attend. Singers may have the opportunity to perform at the Gala Concert – the closing event of the International Week for Peace on the 7th August.
