The Rest Is Noise

Described by the Boston Globe as "one of the world's most remarkable singers," American tenor Nicholas Phan is increasingly recognized as an artist of distinction. Praised for his keen intelligence, captivating stage presence and natural musicianship, he performs regularly with the world's leading orchestras and opera companies. Also an avid recitalist, in 2010 he co-founded the Collaborative Arts Institute of Chicago (CAIC) to promote art song and vocal chamber music, where he serves as Artistic Director. 

Phan once again launches his new season in Chicago, curating CAIC's seventh annual Collaborative Arts Festival. This year's three-day festival (Sep 5 - 8), "The Song as Drama," will examine the narrative power of the song cycle and the ability of song to tell epic stories with minimal forces. Other highlights of his 2018-19 season are two role debuts: Eumolpus in Stravinsky's Perséphone, with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony; and the title role in Handel's Jephtha, with Boston Baroque and Martin Pearlman. The title role in Bernstein's Candide, with Marin Alsop and the Israel Philharmonic, will mark his debut in Israel. In addition to three programs with the San Francisco Symphony, he will return to major orchestras across the country including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, and Colorado Symphony. In November he will sing the first of many outings of Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin this season, as he gives the world premiere of Antoine Plante's arrangement of the cycle for full orchestra, with Mercury, the Houston-based orchestra of which Plante is the founder. A celebrated recording artist, Phan will be heard on two forthcoming recordings: Berlioz's Roméo et Juliette with Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, (recorded in June 2017); and Handel's Joseph and His Brethren (recorded in December 2017) with Philharmonia Baroque and Nicholas McGegan, singing the roles of Simeon and Judah ... read full bio
