Mr. Packer is featured on several commercial recording releases including Nashville Symphony’s Porgy and Bess on Decca Records and Paragon Ragtime Symphony’s Treemonisha and Black Manhattan Volume 3, both on New World Records. He is featured to critical acclaim in San Francisco Opera’s DVD release of Francesca Zambello’s Porgy and Bess


Most recently Mr. Packer returned to The Metropolitan Opera as Howard Boucher in the highly anticipated Dead Man Walking and reprised the role of Spinner in Fire Shut Up in Bones. In addition, he brought his Alfredo in La Traviata to Knoxville Opera, joined Opera Memphis as Roldofo in their Beale Street La bohème, and joined the South Florida Symphony and Louisiana Philharmonic for Handel’s Messiah.  In the 2022-2023 season, Mr. Packer returned to The Metropolitan Opera to sing Bardolfo in Falstaff and Luis Rodrigo Griffith in Champion. He also made his role début as the Witch in Hansel and Gretel at New Orleans Opera, brought his celebrated Sportin’ Life in Porgy and Bess to Germany’s NDR Elbphilharmonic Orchestra, sang and danced as Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls with Charlottesville Opera, and reprised his Cavaradossi in Tosca for the Soo Theatre. Upcoming Chauncey makes his Washington National Opera début as Sportin’ Life in Porgy and Bess, will sing the role of Ali in Edmond Dede’s Morgaine in a special presentation with Opera Lafayette in collaboration with Opera Creole and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, and will return to the stage of The Metropolitan



"... excellent..." – New York Times

Fire Shut Up in My Bones – “The entire cast was excellent, including the bright-voiced tenor Chauncey Packer as Spinner, Billie’s womanizing husband."


“... lean, ringing tenor…” – Opera News

Porgy and Bess (recording) – “Chauncey Packer’s Sportin’ Life is a true entertainer, putting his unique stamp on “It ain’t necessarily so.” With his lean, ringing tenor, he flirts with the melody, sliding and whooping, and the chorus repeats every flight of vocal fancy. Even the orchestra gets into the act, responding with similar colors. In Packer’s hands, “There’s a boat that’s leavin’” is sinuous and seductive, making Bess’s defection inevitable, and the orchestra cuts loose spectacularly on the playoff."


"... clarion-voiced tenor…” – Opera News

Fire Shut Up in My Bones – “…the flattering charm of clarion-voiced tenor Chauncey Packer’s Spinner.”
