BENJAMIN HOWARD

baritone

One of Howard's standout performances, he approached the song gently and appeared to connect deeply with the music. Howard delivered a smooth sound, utilized dynamics effectively, and conveyed the sentiment with authenticity.

biography 

Hailed as a “standout” (Chicago Tribune) and praised for his “authenticity and smooth sound” (OperaWire), baritone Benjamin Howard is a rising talent based in New York City. This season he is excited to debut with Orchestra Miami, singing Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (Songs of a Wayfarer) in May of 2024. On the opera stage, Benjamin most recently performed the role of Publio in La Clemenza di Tito in 2022 with Bronx Opera. The previous year, he made his major recital debut at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Orange County, CA, joining acclaimed pianist Armen Guzelimian and the Auryn String Quartet for an all-Haydn program. Earlier this fall, Benjamin was thrilled to be named a founding member of New York City's Fourth Wall Ensemble.

 

Other stage highlights include Pish-Tush in The Mikado with Pacific Opera Project, the title role in Don Giovanni, the Count in Le Nozze di Figaro, Ping in Turandot, Speaker in Die Zauberflöte, Rapunzel's Prince in Into the Woods, and Connie Rivers in Ricky Ian Gordon’s The Grapes of Wrath. As a concert soloist, Benjamin has performed the complete Songs of Travel by Vaughan Williams, the Fauré and Duruflé Requiems, Rossini’s Stabat Mater, and Rodrigo’s Ausencias de Dulcinea, among others.
