Tenor Mark Mowry has performed a diverse range of opera, concert, and recital repertoire that reflects his broad musical interests. He has sung leading roles in such operas as Britten's Albert Herring, Curlew River, and The Turn of the Screw [at Snape Maltings Concert Hall in the U.K.), Handel's Acis and Galatea, Mozart's Così fan tutte and Idomeneo, Prokofiev's The Love for Three Oranges, Smetana's The Bartered Bride, and Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress. As concert soloist he has been heard in the music of Bach (Magnificat, St. John Passion, St. Matthew Passion), Britten (Rejoice in the Lamb, St. Nicolas, War Requiem), Handel (Messiah), Haydn (Creation), Mendelssohn(Elijah), Mozart (C Minor Mass, Coronation Mass, Requiem, Solemn Vespers,), John Stainer (Crucifixion), and Vaughan Williams (Hodie), among others. An advocate of the song genre, Mowry has participated in numerous master classes devoted to the subject and led by such noted pianists as Graham Johnson, Roger Vignoles, and Håkan Hagegård; his own recital appearances have occurred both at home in the U.S. and, more recently, in the United Kingdom —first at Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh for the 2001Aldeburgh Festival, and then for his debut recital at London's Wigmore Hall in 2002, for which Graham Johnson was pianist. In addition, his various musical activities have taken him to the cities of Chicago, Dublin, Moscow, Munich, New York, Salzburg, Tokyo, and Washington, D.C.
