John Brancy is known for his intense musicality and communicative power. The baritone is equally at home in staged opera, concert performance, and recital, with a wide-ranging repertoire including classical, contemporary music, and musical theatre. He won First Prizes a.o. in the Art Song Division of the 2018 Concours Musical International de Montreal and the 2018 Lotte Lenya Competition in New York. The 2019 release of Tobias Picker's »Fantastic Mr. Fox«, performed by the Boston Modern Orchestra Project conducted by Gil Rose, won the 2020 GRAMMY Award for Best Opera Recording. During the 2021-22 season, Brancy joins the Rundfunkchor Berlin for performances of »human requiem«, a scenic realization of Johannes Brahms »Ein deutsches Requiem« staged by Jochen Sandig and members of Sasha Waltz & Guests, at the Ludwigsburg Festival.
