Robert Sims, Gold Medal winner of the American Traditions Competition, has been hailed by critics for his rich tone and convincing stage presence. Sims brings his energetic performance to the Sundays at 4 series, joined by soprano Elizabeth Norman and pianist Paul Hamilton.

In 2005, Sims made his recital debut at Carnegie Hall and was invited by Jessye Norman to participate in “Honor!
