The National Arts Club of New York bestowed a citation for Lifetime achievement in Music and Education in 1997. Since 1999, he has held the prestigious title Kammersänger, which is given by the Vienna Opera and is an appointment for life. Hampson received an honorary doctorate from the San Francisco conservatory one year later and in 2002 he became a Chevalier de l'ordre des arts et lettres, the French equivalent to British knighthood. In 2002, the multi-grammy-nominated singer also received the Grammy award for best opera recording of Tannhäuser.

Thomas Hampson was a musical protégé of Leonard Bernstein and has made a steep and successful career. At the age of forty eight his voice is at the height of its power and he remains one of the most sought-after opera singers of our time.
