Ian Greenlaw’s performing career has brought him to center stage of opera companies and orchestras on both sides of the Atlantic as a leading baritone. His artistry is also focused on education, where he seeks to impart to future generations of singers, what has been passed down to him. He has performed a wealth of roles with companies such as the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Teatro alla Scala, Chicago Opera Theater, Pittsburgh Opera, Kentucky Opera, Michigan Opera Theater, Opera Colorado, Central City Opera and Opera Theatre of St. Louis. A gifted concert artist, Ian Greenlaw has been a soloist with the New York Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Dallas Symphony, the National Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Saint Louis Symphony, and recently with the Millikin-Decatur Symphony Orchestra. Dr. Greenlaw has been on the roster of the Marilyn Horne Foundation, under whose auspices he performed his debut recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Concert Hall. He is a vocal instructor at the Interlochen Center for the Arts during its summer vocal arts program and is currently Assistant Professor of Music at Millikin University, where he is the director of Millikin Opera Theatre. Directing credits with Millikin Opera Theatre include the world-premier of Nina: La Storia Nascosta, an operatic compendium of the 24 Italian Art Songs and Arias, developed with Mary Beth Sederburg, Samuel Barber's A Hand of Bridge and Gian Carlo Menotti's The Medium.
