Opera singer Keith Harris discusses life with dyslexia in online event

PUTNEY — The Landmark College Center for Neurodiversity will host an online discussion with opera singer Keith Harris on Thursday, March 4, at 7 p.m.

The American baritone's presentation, “The Gift of Dyslexia,” combines music with a message of inspiration and hope that draws from his 2019 book, The Odds Against: Finding the Advantage In Your Disadvantage.

He will discuss his life with dyslexia and how he went from almost being placed in a reading group for kids with intellectual and developmental disabilities to performing on some of the most renowned stages in the world.

Praised for the distinctive warmth of his voice, clear diction, and exceptional musicianship, Harris captivates audiences in his performances on both operatic and concert stages, including the Metropolitan Opera House and Carnegie Hall.

His numerous honors and awards include first prize in the Northwest Region Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions; “Young Artist of the Year” with Opera Longview National Young Opera Artists of the Year competition in Texas; the Ellen Faull Gordon Vocal Competition; and the Ladies Musical Club of Seattle Award/Tour Competition.

He holds a master of music degree in voice performance from the University of Washington and a bachelor of music degree in voice performance from Lawrence University in Wisconsin.
