Soloman Howard

Soloman Howard’s voice is described as “sonorous” by The New York Times, “superhuman” by The Denver Post, and “a triumph” by The Guardian.

His 2018-19 season features performances at the Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Opéra de Montréal, Santa Fe Opera, and Washington National Opera and, on the concert stage, he appears with Harry Christophers and the Handel & Haydn Society as well as on an international tour with Harry Bicket leading The English Concert.

Soloman Howard frequently appears with such heralded conductors as James Conlon, Christoph Eschenbach, Gustavo Dudamel, Nicola Luisotti, and Gianandrea Noseda.

Soloman Howard is the recipient of the 2019 Marian Anderson Vocal Award, which is given by Washington National Opera in recognition of a young American singer in opera, oratorio, or recital repertoire with outstanding promise for a significant career. The Anti-Defamation League presented Soloman Howard with their “Making a Difference Award” in the summer of 2016 for raising awareness of voting rights though his performances of Appomattox at the Kennedy Center; and for bringing opera into the larger community. Soloman Howard is a proud graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and of Morgan State University.
