Lindsay Kate Brown, Assistant Professor of Voice

We are pleased to announce that Lindsay Kate Brown will join the faculty of the LSU School of Music as Assistant Professor of Voice, beginning in Fall 2024!

In her recent 2022-2023 season, Ms. Brown made her debut with The Dallas Opera as Wellgunde in Wagner’s Das Rheingold in a new and innovative production directed by Tomer Zvulun. Finishing her season, she made her debut as the Alto Soloist in Verdi’s Requiem with the Southern Florida Master Chorale in April 2023. An avid concert performer, Ms. Brown has performed on the concert stage as the mezzo soloist in several oratorios and as a featured soloist, including Mahler’s infamous Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. Ms. Brown also had the opportunity to perform in the world premiere of Santino DeAngelo’s Narcissus as Liriope in a sold- out performance in January 2016; perhaps one of her personal career highlights thus far.

More recently, Ms. Brown performed two of Mahler’s greatest works, Urlicht and Der Antonius von Padua Fischpredigt, with orchestra at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music. Ms. Brown also recently joined The Metropolitan Opera to cover both The Inkeeper in Stephen Wadsworth’s production of Mussorgsky’s Borris Godunov with Maestro Sebastian Weigle, and Big Stone in Aucoin’s contemporary opera Eurydice with Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Ms. Brown made her HGO debut in 2019 as Giovanna in Tomer Zvulun’s production of Verdi’s Rigoletto and subsequently portrayed the roles of Gertrude in Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel and Sister Berthe in My Favorite Things: Songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music

An advocate for education in the arts, Ms. Brown founded the non-profit organization United in Opera in December 2020. The goal of United in Opera is to provide information, resources, and access to mentorship to young members of the opera community. As of March 2024, United in Opera has grown to over 3,000 followers. Ms. Brown graduated in May 2018 from Rice University in Houston, TX with an Artist Diploma in Opera Performance. In 2016, Ms. Brown graduated from Binghamton University in Binghamton, NY with a degree in Opera Performance. Ms. Brown is represented by Promethean Artists.

“I am thrilled to be joining the esteemed faculty of the School of Music at LSU,” Brown said. “I look forward to sharing my passion for music and nurturing the next generation of well-rounded musicians, equipping them with lifelong skills and unlocking the creativity needed to thrive in today's dynamic music industry.
