Philip Lima


Baritone Philip Lima has sung leading operatic roles in Germany and for regional American opera companies in repertoire ranging from traditional favorites by Handel, Mozart, Puccini, and Verdi, to important works of twentieth century masters such as Samuel Barber, Benjamin Britten, and Viktor Ullmann, to the comic masterworks of Gilbert and Sullivan. Of particular note have been his featured roles in the world premieres of operas by jazz greats Leslie Burrs, Nathan Davis, and Mary Watkins, and by award-winning composer Larry Bell.

He has appeared as soloist with the Boston Pops and more than 70 orchestras, choral societies, and concert series across the United States and in Korea and Ukraine in beloved choral masterpieces as well as concert works by Leonard Bernstein, Dave Brubeck, and Lee Hoiby (his setting of the “I Have a Dream” speech of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.). He is featured on the recording of pioneering African-American composer Florence Price’s Abraham Lincoln Walks at Midnight that won the 2020 American Prize for the Performance of American Music.

Mr. Lima serves as the assistant chair of Berklee College of Music’s Voice department.
