The Ladies’ Morning Musical Club presents


Beautiful, blooming tone and magnetic stage presence is how the San Francisco Chronicle described Canadian bass-baritone Philippe Sly. Sly was first-prize winner at the prestigious Montreal International Musical Competition in 2012 and a grand prize winner at the 2011 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. He received his Bachelor of Music degree in voice performance from McGill University, where he participated in performances of La Bohème (Marcello), The Rape of Lucretia (Collatinus) and The Rake’s Progress (Nick Shadow). In recent seasons Sly has appeared at the Paris Opera, the Hamburg Opera, l’Opera de Lyon, the Aix-en-Provence Festival, Glyndebourne, the Philadelphia Orchestra with Yannick-Nézet-Séguin and the Montreal Symphony with Kent Nagano. Sly has recorded two solo albums on the Analekta label: In Dreams with renowned Montreal pianist Michael McMahon (2012) and Schubert Sessions with American guitarist John Charles Britton (2016).
