Tenor Bradley Howard serves as Director of Vocal Studies at Emory University.  He teaches the opera and musical theatre workshop, performance techniques, and coordinates the vocal program.  His teaching is animated by his conviction that effective singing is achieved through a balancing of mind, body, and soul.

With a singing career of twenty years spanning the classical and modern choral works, solo recitals, and operatic roles, Howard has developed a repertoire of some of opera’s most classic roles, including Mozart’s Tamino in The Magic Flute and Ferrando in Cosi fan tutte, Puccini’s Rodolfo in La Bohème, Leoncavallo’s Beppe in I Pagliacci, Britten’s Peter Quint in The Turn of the Screw, and the title roles of Albert Herring and Candide.

Recent concerts have include collaborations with pianists Deborah Thoreson and Will Ransom, guitarist Rylan Smith, poet Natasha Tretheway, the Vega String Quartet, and Emory Symphony and University Chorus performing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Schwartz Center at Emory.

He currently is the Director of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions for the Southeastern Region of the United States.

Mr. Howard earned his BM in Voice Performance at Baylor University, Waco, TX (1989) and MM in Voice Performance from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH (1992).
