Reuben L. Lillie


I’m a classically trained tenor, currently exploring lyric and lyrico-dramatic repertoire. I’m also comfortable with a number of contemporary vocal techniques.

(From 2007 to 2019, I performed as a baritone.)

This page lists some of my stage and concert work.

Have voice, will travel. What else would you like me to sing?
