A Broadway actor, Greene currently plays the part of George Washington in the hit musical Hamilton.
An evening of opera arias, Broadway show tunes, reggae, jazz, and R&B musical fusion
Tease your senses and experience Broadway star Tamar Greene of the hit musical “Hamilton.” Join him on an evening journey of the eclectic tones of an opera, reggae, jazz, theater, and R&B musical fusion.
Born and raised in Rochester, New York, Tamar Greene completed degrees at SUNY Oswego and the Eastman School of Music before commencing a career in musical theater that has taken him around the world. Greene’s many credits include roles in First National Tours of “Love Never Dies,” “Porgy and Bess,” Charlie in the NY Philharmonic’s filmed production of “Show Boat,” and George Washington in the Chicago production of “Hamilton.” He has been playing the role of George Washington in the Broadway production of “Hamilton” at the Richard Rodgers Theater since 2020.
As a proud first-generation American, born of Jamaican and British parents, Greene is a versatile artist whose musical passions mirror his eclectic background. As a writer, arranger, classical pianist and an opera singer, he combines much of his inspiration from Classical music, Reggae, Hip-Hop, R&B, Blues, and Jazz. His single, “Soaring” is available on all streaming platforms.
Greene will appear at Hendricks Chapel with his former SUNY Oswego piano professor, Robert Auler, an accomplished pianist who has performed on six continents, and whose playing the New York Times describes as possessing “extraordinary rhythmic clarity and expression.”
