Tamar Greene, a 2009 SUNY Oswego alumnus who appears on Broadway as George Washington in the mega-hit musical “Hamilton,” will return for a concert at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 28, in Tyler Hall’s Waterman Theatre.

He was originally scheduled to perform in October, but COVID postponed his concert to this date.

Part of the college’s Artswego Performing Arts Series, Greene’s performance is titled “per·​cep·​tion | pər-`sep-shən: ​​The ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses.” Greene will offer an evening  journey of the unexpected and eclectic sounds, rhythms, and tones of an opera, reggae, standards, R&B and hip hop musical fusion.

In 2018, the tenor was part of the First National Tour and North American premiere of "Love Never Dies," Andrew Lloyd Webber’s spellbinding sequel to "Phantom of the Opera." As a proud first-generation American, born of Jamaican and British parents, he is a versatile artist whose musical passions mirror his eclectic background. 

As a kid from the Caribbean, I grew up knowing the struggle of an immigrant family and what it means to be part of America,” Greene told the Oswego alumni magazine. “All the while I was watching ‘Hamilton,’ I was thinking: This musical would show my family why I must do what I do.”

“Tamar’s voice is amazing — large, clear, expressive, musical and beautiful,” SUNY Oswego music professor Todd Graber told the alumni magazine. “Broadway will always have a place for ‘legit’ voices, and his is that! Honestly, I thought he’d have a good chance in opera, but it didn’t surprise me when he began getting cast in non-operatic shows.”

In addition, Greene will work with SUNY Oswego vocal students at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, in Room 50 of Tyler Hall. He will be joined by his wife Lindsey Roberts, who can be seen in the Broadway company of "The Phantom of the Opera." All are welcome to view this masterclass, which will include time at the end to ask Greene questions about his life and career. 

Tickets for the concert are free for SUNY Oswego students; $5 for other students;  $15 for faculty, staff and alumni; and $20 for the general public. To make reservations, visit tickets.oswego.edu or any campus box office.

The concert is presented in collaboration with the SUNY Oswego Music Department’s Ke-nekt’ Chamber Music Series.
