Davóne Tines is “changing what it means to be a classical singer” and “one of the most powerful voices of our time” (The New Yorker/Los Angeles Times). He makes his anticipated NWS debut with songs by American composers, including his own. Vigil—Tines’ co-creation with Igée Dieudonné and Matthew Aucoin—is a poignant call to action in honor of Breonna Taylor. Tines also performs Samuel Barber’s WWII-reflection Dover Beach, Caroline Shaw’s take on popular hymn “I’ll Fly Away” and Carlos Simon’s arrangement of the gospel “Angels in Heaven.” Rounding out the program are Ottorino Respighi’s evocation of three Botticelli paintings, Ann Millikan’s train-inspired romp and Antonio Vivaldi’s Sonata for Oboe.

Davóne Tines, baritone
Heralded as a “singer of immense power and fervor” and “[one] of the most powerful voices of our time” (Los Angeles Times), “the immensely gifted American bass-baritone Davóne Tines has won acclaim, and advanced the field of classical music” (The New York Times). This “next generation leader” (Time) is a path-breaking artist at the intersection of many histories, cultures and aesthetics. His work blends opera, spirituals, gospel and anthems, as a means to tell a deeply personal story of perseverance and human connection.
