BRAY WILKINS

WILL PARKER, OKLAHOMA!
GRANTAIRE, LES MISÉRABLES

A native of Louisiana, operatic tenor Bray Wilkins has had the opportunity to perform professionally all over the country. Most recently Mr. Wilkins was with The Opera Company of Middlebury singing the role of Lensky in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin. Having the privilege to be a Seattle Opera Young Artist Mr. Wilkins sang with them from 2008-10. As a three-time Fellow at the Music Academy of the West, Wilkins had the opportunity to study under Marilyn Horne and the Academy's prestigious staff. In his final season, Mr. Wilkins had the privilege of working with William Bolcom, singing the role of Luigi in the West coast premiere of Bolcom's opera A Wedding. In the summer of 2008 Wilkins was thrilled to work with popular American composer Stephen Schwartz, singing the role of Mr. Clayton in the workshop sessions of his first opera, Séance On A Wet Afternoon. The following year Mr. Wilkins covered the role in the world premiere in Santa Barbara, CA.

In addition, Wilkins has appeared as a soloist in numerous concert performances; some works include Handel's Messiah, Haydn's The Creation, Bach's Cantata No. 140 and No. 248, Mozart's Requiem, Coronation mass, and Missa Brevis, Berlioz's L'enfance du Christ, Fauré's Requiem, and Ralph Vaughan Williams's Serenade to Music.
