Boston-based baritone Bradford Gleim performs opera, oratorio, song and choral music to critical acclaim throughout the United States and abroad. “Gleim’s rich, expressive voice” has been described as “consistently impressive, his restraint only reinforced [by] his vocal charisma” and his flexible burnished baritone praised as “reliable and resonant.” He has appeared with such festivals and ensembles as The Bermuda Festival, Boston Cecilia, Emmanuel Music, The Handel and Haydn Society, The Hereford Three Choirs Festival, Opera Boston and the Mark Morris Dance Group.
