Bourgie Hall presents

Davóne Tines, bass-baritone & John Bitoy, piano – Recital No.1: Mass

“In a matter of minutes, we had traversed multiple centuries and worlds, yet all the music was filtered through the taut resonance of one voice: a timbre at once grand and fraught, potent and vulnerable.” – The New Yorker.

Artist-in-residence at the Michigan Opera Theatre, Davóne Tines challenges classical conventions by bringing together music of various cultures and aesthetic currents, transporting us on a collective spiritual quest.

Davóne Tines, bass-baritone

“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 Magazine) 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.
