In this master class, baritone Thomas Hampson guides Bienen School students through the intricacies of American art song. Hampson has been recognized for his performance and study of American music, one of his many areas of expertise.

Honored as a Metropolitan Opera Guild “Met Mastersinger” and inducted into both the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and Gramophone’s Hall of Fame, Hampson is one of the most respected and innovative musicians of our time.
