"Andrew Garland had the crowd in his hands,” says The Boston Globe of his recent performance as Papageno in Mozart’s The Magic Flute with Boston Baroque. This season Andrew joined Boston Lyric Opera for La Bohème, Dayton Opera in a world premiere prequel to Carmina Burana, Bob Jones University as Dandini in La Cenerentola, and the Colorado Symphony for performances of Messiah. Last season was highlighted by his return to Seattle Opera as Harlekin in Ariadne auf Naxos. Past performances include Dandini with Opera Philadelphia and Fort Worth Opera, Mercurio (La Calisto) and the title role in Galileo Galilei (Philip Glass) at Cincinnati Opera, Papageno at Boston Lyric Opera, and Riolobo (Florencia en el Amazonas) and Schaunard (La Bohème) at Seattle Opera. During the next two seasons he performs world premieres by William Bolcom with Minnesota Opera, and by Gabriela Lena Frank and Pulitzer Prize winner Nilo Cruz with the Houston Symphony.
Garland is widely recognized as a leader in recital work. Warren Jones, Marilyn Horne, Steven Blier, and a number of American composers and several major music publications all endorse him as a highly communicative singer leading the song recital into the 21st Century. He was the cover story on the May 2016 issue of Classical Singer Magazine. He also brings his highly communicative style to the concert stage with orchestras including the Atlanta Symphony, Houston Symphony, Boston Baroque, Handel and Haydn Society, Albany Symphony, Boston Youth Symphony, National Philharmonic, Washington Master Chorale at the Kennedy Center, and National Chorale at Lincoln Center.
