New Orleans´ native son Tyrone Chambers, is an expressive and captivating tenor who, critics declare, sings with “artfully melting tenor, [and] represents a real asset.” Recently making his Swiss debut with L’Orchestre de Chambre de Genève, he sang Joe in Gershwin’s Blue Monday. As principal tenor and founding artist in New Orleans-based OperaCréole, Chambers created the role of Jean Torrès in Lucien Lambert’s La Flamenca and Basile Barès in a new work entitled Les Lions de la Reconstruction.

Mr. Chambers has been in Germany since the summer 2017 and frequently performs around the country. The Süddeutsche Zeitung heralded him for singing with “tenorissimo…, fine in the heights, elegantly gliding on the tempi waves and in forte with powerful dedication.” The 2019-2020 season was full for Mr. Chambers with performances in Brazil, in Germany with Papageno Musiktheater in Frankfurt and Opera et Cetera, and in the USA. Mr. Chambers resides in Mainz, Germany.
