Kenneth Tarver (tenor)

Kenneth Tarver is considered one of the outstanding tenore-di-grazia (lyric tenor, a voice type which is light and agile) of his generation. A specialist in Mozart and demanding virtuosic operatic repertoire, he has appeared at the most prestigious opera houses and concert halls around the world, performing with conductors such as Riccardo Chailly, Pierre Boulez, Claudio Abbado, René Jacobs and Bobby McFerrin. A graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy and Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, and Yale University School of Music, Kenneth was a member of the Metropolitan Opera’s Young Artist Development Program and the Staatsoper Stuttgart Ensemble. His repertoire includes, among others, works by Berlioz, Rossini, Handel, Mozart, Rameau, Gluck, Traetta, and Haydn. Career highlights include Rodion Shchedrin’s My Age, My Wild Beast; Orff’s Carmina Burana at the Verbier Festival; a film of Judith Weir’s Armida for Channel 4 (UK); and Mozart’s Requiem at the Tanglewood Festival conducted by James Levine. His discography includes collaborations with Deutsche Grammophon, LSO Live (including Sir Colin Davis’s Grammy-winning Les Troyens), Opera Rara, and Harmonia Mundi.
