NATHAN GRANNER is a world-renowned leading tenor, headliner, solo and collaborative artist, specializing in Contemporary Opera and late Bel-Canto repertoire.
The San Francisco Chronicle recently described Mr. Granner’s singing as possessing a "sinewy, ringing tone; splendidly flexible" and the San Francisco Classical Voice extolled "tons of squillo on his top notes, his honeyed tone, and his sensitive dynamic choices..."
Nathan has created numerous characters in world premiere operas including the role of Korey Wise in Anthony Davis' Pulitzer Prize winning "The Central Park Five," the title character in Stewart Copeland’s "The Invention of Morel" for Chicago Opera Theater and Long Beach Opera and the role of Aubrey Wells in Laura Kaminsky's newest opera Today it Rains with Opera Paralléle.
This coming season Nathan is in negotiation for a couple amazing 2021 projects. We can’t put it out to the world just yet so stay tuned.
Not to be undone by Covid19, Mr. Granner has used his skills as a producing artist to create a multitude of video performances for a number of different organizations, including "Sing Out Loud" a web series for LA Opera’s Connects division (with his wife, soprano Jamie Chamberlin) has led to a passel of new fans and will be returning for another season. Stay tuned for a LOT more.
Granner's work as a recording artist (with Sony Classical, as a founding member of The American Tenors), netted a top five on the Billboard Classical-Crossover charts and as a headliner has sent him touring across the nation and into the EU and Russia.
