Reginald Mobley

Performance Year: 2020

Particularly noted for his “crystalline diction and pure, evenly produced tone” (Miami Herald), countertenor Reginald Mobley is highly sought after for baroque, classical and modern repertoire. Past performances of note include premiering a reconstruction of Bach’s Markus-Passion at the Oregon Bach Festival, constructed and led by Matthew Halls, as well as an extensive tour of sixteen concerts around Europe singing Bach’s Matthäus-Passion with the Monteverdi Choir & English Baroque Soloists led by Sir John Eliot Gardiner. He returned to work with the ensemble last season for a further European tour where international reviews commented on his “purity of timbre” and “homogeny of tone.” He also performed in concerts of Handel’s Messiah with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Purcell’s King Arthur with the Academy of Ancient Music in London. Upcoming engagements include concerts with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and New Jersey Symphony and several European dates including Mozart Requiem in Poland in April 2019.

Reggie’s profile in Germany is firmly established and continues to develop, with the 2019/20 season seeing him embark on a tour of Germany with Freiburg Barockorchester as well as returning to BachAkademie Stuttgart for a series of concerts in 2020. Other upcoming engagements include a recital at the Musee d’Orsay in Paris and a tour of Germany and Belgium in September with Balthasar-Neumann-Chor und-Ensemble performing Bach Cantatas and Händel: Dixit Dominus.
