Recognized for his “commanding stage presence and impeccable pitch, - Jed Gaylin, conductor, Bay-Atlantic Symphony” international opera and concert singer Richard Lindsey’s voice has been described as “phenomenal and sweet.” He has been distinguished for his dramatic expressiveness and musicality.
During his 2018 performance season, Richard appeared in a concert at St. Cecilia’s Hall, Edinburgh. In his performance Call it MAGIC!, he presented a spectacle of classical music, free improvisation, that detailed his emerging life story—seeking the impossible dream of becoming an opera singer in the age of hip-hop culture. In addition, Richard opened the summer concert season at Canongate Kirk, Edinburgh. In 2019 Richard portrayed the role of Dr. Falke at the Irvine Barclay Theater in California and appeared in countless concerts as a soloist. This past June, he was heard in a concert as the featured baritone soloist for Dona Nobis Pacem by Ralph Vaughn Williams accompanied by the Chamber Singers at the University of California.
Richard Lindsey has performed in major concert halls and universities to include Princeton University, Yale University, Carnegie Hall and the Kimmel Center—under the baton of maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
A Los Angeles district winner of the Marian Anderson Vocal Competition overseen by the NANM, Lindsey is a sponsored artist of The Opera Buffs LLC, an organization with a mission to provide financial support to promising emerging opera singers.
