Reginald Mobley

Particularly noted for his “shimmering voice, a voice which also allows lucid and pure levels” (Bachtrack), countertenor Reginald Mobley is highly sought after in Baroque, Classical and modern repertoire.

He leads a prolific career in the United States, where he resides. In March 2020, he became the first-ever programming consultant for the Handel & Haydn Society, following several years of leading H+H in his community-engaging "Every Voice" concerts. He also holds the position of visiting artist for diversity outreach with the Baroque-era ensemble Apollo's Fire.

Mobley is a regular guest with Cantata Collective, Musica Angelica, Agave Baroque, Charlotte Bach Akademie, Seraphic Fire, Quodlibet, Pacific Music Works, Bach Collegium San Diego, San Francisco Early Music Society and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra. Recent engagements have included concerts and recordings with organizations such as Opera Lafayette, Blue Heron, Chatham Baroque and Washington Bach Consort.

In Europe, his career is expanding; in the United Kingdom, he has toured with the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists, and has performed with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Academy of Ancient Music. He will make his debut with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in June 2022 and has been invited to perform with the Orkiestra Historycsna in Poland and the Vienna Academy in Austria (Musikverein). He also gave a recital (with a spiritual program) at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and toured with the Freiburger Barockorchester under Kristian Bezuidenhout, Balthasar Neumann Chor & Ensemble and the Bach Society in Stuttgart.

In fall 2021, he will perform the role of Ottone in L'incoronazione di Poppea with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Stabat Mater with Seraphic Fire, a Bach program with Orchestra Wiener Akadamie, Handel’s Messiah with both the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as at Los Angeles Walt Disney Hall and Carnegie Hall. In 2023, he will tour Australia  with Bach Akademie Australia.

His recordings have been received with critical acclaim, most recently for his work on "A Lad’s Love" (Bridge) with Brian Giebler, which was nominated for best classical solo vocal album. He has also been featured on several albums with the Monteverdi Choir and Sir John Eliot Gardiner, including a recording of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and Magnificat. His own projects include "Peace in Our Time" (VGo Recordings) with Agave Baroque. He also looks forward to his solo recording debut with Alpha Classics titled "Spirituals," to be released in 2022.
