Tenor Soloist

The Louisville Orchestra, 2019


Other highlights have included Henrik Egerman (A Little Night Music) with Broadway conductor Andy Einhorn, the tenor soloist in Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9 with the Louisville Orchestra conducted by Teddy Abrams, and a number of fulfilling oratorio, recital, and concert performances. Spencer has performed several excerpts from other leading roles such as Ferrando (Così fan tutte), Il duca di Mantua (Rigoletto), Faust (Faust), Des Grieux (Manon), and Tom Rakewell (The Rake’s Progress) across the United States and is awaiting the next challenge. Other favorite moments have included Eisenstein (Die Fledermaus) and Nika Magadoff (Menotti’s The Consul).

Summer of 2020, Boyd was scheduled to return to Aspen Music Festival for a third consecutive summer to cover the role of Tamino and sing First Armored Knight in Die Zauberflöte with the newly titled ‘Aspen Opera Theater and Vocal Arts Program’ co-directed by Renée Fleming and Patrick Summers. This, among other potential engagements, was cancelled. The tenor is looking forward to the coming performance seasons and a time when we can all return to experiencing live theater.
"At the heart of Carmen is the tragedy of the gypsy and her soldier lover. Tenor Spencer Lawrence Boyd is the up and coming soldier, caught in the stickiness of Carmen’s web. Despite his own efforts and those of Micaela, Carmen’s dark attraction lures him. His singing, especially in duets was very fine."
