Dr. William Kenlon is a baritone who excels in a wide variety of settings, and composer of innovative, new music for chamber, choral, and jazz ensembles. As a singer, William specializes in French and German art song, and in interpreting new music, having premiered dozens of works by living composers in New England and the Mid-Atlantic. William has performed with small and large choirs across the U.S. and on three continents. His compositions have been described as “pointed and groovy” (New Music Box), garnering praise for its “lyrical personality that is original and strong” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), and for its sophisticated tonal explorations: “solid without being dense, clear without being sparse, and ever-changing without being random” (ibid). Currently a freelance singer, and a theory instructor at the University of Maryland, Dr. Kenlon also enjoy his work teaching budding composers, pianists, and singers.
