Artist Reviews

“Thomas Humphreys is wonderfully masculine in his voice and behaviour.”

For Marcello (La boheme) for the King’s Head Theatre 2016 - London Pub Theatres

“Thomas Humphreys’ Mark formed a strong double act with [Matthew] Kimble and stood out for his fine baritone voice.”

Danny Coleman-Cooke, British Theatre

“Memorable within the various cameo roles was…Thomas Humphreys as Jake Wallace, whose homesick lament reached into the very heart of the score.”

For Jake Wallace (La fanciulla del West) at Grange Park Opera 2016 - David Truslove, Bachtrack

“Vaughan Williams’s George Herbert setting, Five Mystical Songs, in which the young baritone Thomas Humphreys touched nerves one would associate with a John Shirley-Quirk or a Bryn Terfel.”

For Concert with City of London Choir at the English Music Festival, 2013 - Roderic Dunnett, Church Times

“Impressive baritone Thomas Humphreys sang his solos incisively and with powerful projection.”

For Ein Deutsches Requiem (Brahms) at Tewkesbury Abbey, 2012 - Colin Burrow, The Gloucestershire Echo


Thomas Humphreys began singing as a chorister at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford and studied at the Royal Academy of Music.

In opera, he has been praised for his “captivating” and “powerful” voice. He has sung the title role in Don Giovanni for the Opera Holland Park Young Artist Programme, as well as returning for their 2018 season to sing the roles of L’araldo Maggiore, Isabeau and The Wigmaker, Ariadne auf Naxos. He made his debut with Glyndebourne Touring Opera as Servo di Flora, La Traviata, as well as covering the role of The Captain, Eugene Onegin for Glyndebourne Festival Opera. He has been critically acclaimed for his performance of Jake Wallace La Fanciulla del West for Grange Park Opera. He has also sung and understudied roles for Opera Holland Park, English Touring Opera, the Merry Opera Company, and the King’s Head Theatre, recently singing Le Grand Pretre de Dagon Samson et Dalila for the Grimeborn Festival.

Thomas is in high demand on the concert platform, regularly performing with the premiere orchestras and choirs of the UK at venues such as the Barbican Hall, Cadogan Hall, Wigmore Hall, St. John’s, Smith Square among many others. He has formed a close working relationship with many of the country’s foremost choral conductors, such as Gavin Carr, Hilary Davan Wetton, David Pipe and Jonathan Willcocks. He has recently performed Ein deutsches Requiem (Brahms) at Barbican Hall with the London Concert Choir and Southbank Sinfonia, under the baton of Mark Forkgen, Mass in C Minor (Mozart) and Requiem (Faure) with the City of London Choir and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Hilary Davan Wetton and Missa in Tempori Belli (Haydn) in York Minster with York Musical Society under the baton of David Pipe.

Thomas is also a keen recitalist, performing his first Winterreise (Schubert) at South Hill Park Arts in Bracknell. He has performed a wide ranging repertoire of Russian, German, French and English Song across the UK and abroad. Notable highlights include a recital of Rachmaninov and Vaughan Williams in the Chaliapin House Museum in Moscow, recitals as part of the Armonie della Magna Graecia Festival in Calabria, Italy and a recital of Russian and Bulgarian Song in the National Radio Hall, Varna, Bulgaria.
