American tenor Terrence Chin-Loy, whom Opera News described as having a “beautiful lyric tenor voice” pairs passionate performance with a full, sweet sound.

“Terrence Chin-Loy gave a delightful and convincing depiction of Laurie, both as an adolescent and as an adult. Chin-Loy has a beautiful lyric tenor voice that kept its silken quality even when required to sing in registers that lead many tenors to shriek.”

Opera News

Pittsburgh in the Round

“As Laurie, Terrence Chin-Loy displayed a richly colored voice and eloquent diction. His high spirits and infectious smile…suited Laurie.”
