Hailed as a “smooth, thrilling Baritone” and “strong dramatic actor” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Baritone Joel Clemens is quickly becoming known across the East Coast for his exemplary musicianship and dynamic characterization across a broad range of challenging repertoire. Joel returns to Boston for the 2023-2024 season to be featured as a Baritone Soloist in the Holiday Pops, where he makes his Boston Symphony Hall Debut under the direction of Keith Lockhart. He will also be featured in Operatic productions with companies such as Boston Lyric Opera, Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra, White Snake Projects, Boston Opera Collaborative, and Boston Conservatory. Equally comfortable in 21st-century repertoire, Joel reprises the role of Manfred in Jake Heggie’s For a Look or a Touch with West End Lyric this Spring. Joel is a proud alumnus of Seagle Festival’s Emerging Artist Program, Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and James Madison University.
