Benjamin Brecher joined the faculty of the University of California - Santa
Barbara in 2008 after a fifteen-year career singing with many of the world's most
important opera companies and symphony orchestras. He has performed over fifty

performances on opera and concert stages. He has performed over ten roles with
The New York City Opera since 1997, specializing in the bel canto opera repertoire.

On the concert stage, Professor Brecher has performed a wide range of repertoire
