Formed seven years ago, sonically thrilling Bravura is the baritone response to all those tenor-focused vocal groups that have making the rounds.

Comprising three of Canada’s most accomplished leading men from the world of musical theatre – Curtis Sullivan, James Levesque, and George Masswohl – the powerful voices of Bravura bring fresh excitement to repertoire ranging from Broadway and pop to Italian folk tunes and classical music’s best known melodies. If you’re looking for a musical frame of reference, think Josh Grobin but hunkier and times three!

Curtis Sullivan, star of Toronto’s globally esteemed Opera Atelier and the Stratford Festival, has a gorgeous bass-baritone voice that has wowed audiences on Broadway and at innumerable opera houses.

James Levesque is a similarly versatile and adept performer who is equally at home anchoring an opera, commanding the concert stage, or charming the audiences for toe-tapping musicals. Hailed by Opera Canada for his “expressive singing and acting abilities,” Levesque has been performing internationally for 15 years.

Rounding out this terrific trio is George Masswohl, one of this country’s most in-demand leading men. Masswohl has performed lead roles from the Stratford and Shaw Festivals to Halifax’s Neptune Theatre and Broadway touring shows. His suave voice, which shades into tenor range, lifts Bravura’s repertoire to memorable heights. We just heard that George will soon be starring in the Toronto run of Come From Away — a hit on Broadway last season.

Together, these three stars combine rich sonorities and passionate gravitas to offer a unique sound that is deep and rich and unmistakably masculine. Seasoned performers all, the men of Bravura thrill with their scorchingly passionate, frequently funny, and always exciting blend of Canada’s finest baritone  voices.
