Aaron Sheehan is a member of the new generation of American early music vocalists. His voice has been described by Opera News as “sinuous and supple” and the Boston Globe says he “sings with vocal aplomb and musical charm.” He has recorded and toured in the U.S. and Europe with Paul Hillier’s Theater of Voices, and has appeared with other ensembles including Blue Heron Renaissance Choir, Fortune’s Wheel, La Donna Musicale, and Liber unUsualis. In 2001, he was named a finalist in the Chimay International Baroque Singing Competition under the auspices of William Christie. He has also frequently been engaged as a soloist with ensembles including the Handel and Haydn Society, the Aston Magna Festival, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, the Boston Cecilia, Intermezzo Opera Company, and the Lyra Concert Baroque Orchestra. Recent engagements include the role of Ivan in the Boston Early Music Festival’s world premiere staging of Mattheson’s Boris Goudenow, a national tour of the Monteverdi Vespers with Tragicomedia and Concerto Palatino, and a lecture/recital with musicologist Tom Kelly at the Metroplitan Museum of Art in New York.
