About Sherrill

Sherrill Milnes is universally acclaimed as the foremost operatic baritone of his generation. With his powerful voice, commanding stage presence and rugged handsomeness, he achieved the kind of adulation that is usually reserved for tenors. He sang over 650 performances at the Met, where he was honored with sixteen new productions, seven opening nights, and ten national telecasts. As a leading artist in all of the world’s great opera houses, Mr. Milnes performed and recorded with the likes of Domingo, Pavarotti, Caballé, Sutherland, Sills, Horne, Price, and Tebaldi. He is the winner of three Grammy Awards, and the most recorded American singer of his time. In 2008 he received the Opera News Award for Distinguished Achievement.

He’ll host an event tonight in Tarpon Springs, An Evening With Sherrill Milnes and the Ghosts of the Savannah. His festival wraps up Sunday.

Here, Milnes moves about without the glamor of his former life. He and his wife do crossword puzzles and take cruises. They sing Christmas songs at an annual pageant.

But people who know opera know Milnes.”
