[img: Brett Barnes]A native Texan, Mr. Barnes has been thrilling and entertaining Austin's audiences since his student days at the University of Texas. By day, he is a very successful Development Director for non-profits, currently for Lifeworks, a nonprofit organization dedicated to transitioning youth and families from crisis to safety and success, and formerly for Conspirare, a grammy-nominated choral ensemble based in Austin. Prior to that, he was the Artistic Administrator for Austin Lyric Opera for three years and a featured performer in over 22 productions. Maintaining an active singing career, he regularly performs with Texas Early Music Project and the Schola Cantorum of St. Mary’s Cathedral.

As a soloist, Mr. Barnes has been featured with The Houston Masterworks Chorus, Austin Symphony, San Antonio Symphony, Midland-Odessa Symphony, Mid-Texas Symphony, Victoria Bach Festival, and the Richardson Symphony, to name just a few. He has performed with Tulsa Opera, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Beaumont Civic Opera, Capitol City Opera, and others. He is a founding member of the Not-Quite-Rite Players of the Scottish Rite in Austin, which specializes in traditional melodramas. He has been honored as a National Young Artist, a Metropolitan Opera Regional Winner, and was awarded the Marguerite McCammon Award for Vocal Excellence by Ft. Worth Opera. He was a vocal winner of the Soratin competition, and was chosen to participate in the inaugural Festival-de-St. Cérè under the direction of Maestro Robert Shaw.
