Vocalist - Baritone, Symphony Pops
The dynamic American baritone Stephen Powell brings his "rich, lyric baritone, commanding presence, and thoughtful musicianship" (Wall Street Journal) to a wide range of music, from Monteverdi and Handel through Verdi and Puccini to Sondheim and John Adams. Opera magazine has hailed him, writing "the big news was Stephen Powell's gorgeously-sung Onegin: rock solid, with creamy legato from top to bottom and dynamics smoothly tapered but never exaggerated."

“Of all the men who are determined to control Joan, the most powerful is the Bishop Pierre Cauchon, sung by baritone Stephen Powell, making his debut with Odyssey. He was absolutely splendid vocally and also with the intense, unyielding focus that Joan confess and yield to the demand that she dress like a woman. Whenever the two of them measure off, sparks fly.”

"I never thought I'd find myself wanting to review a recording of Orff's Carmina Burana, but this one with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra caught my ear and is so superb—so lively, accurate, cleanly recorded, and handsomely played—that its action-movie, apocalyptic aspects are matched by its introspective moments."
