Praised by the New York Daily News for his “rich voice, capable of great dramatic force” and San Francisco Classical Voice for the “heart at the core of his soulful sound,” Ian Howell sings with a warm and seamless tone. He has sung with Florentine Opera, New York City Opera, and Opera London, and with most major North American baroque orchestras. Especially sought after in the works of Bach and Handel, Mr. Howell has recorded for the American Bach Soloists, Warner Classics, Rhino, and Gothic labels. His debut solo CD, 1685 and the Art of Ian Howell with The American Bach Soloists features repertory by Domenico Scarlatti, J.S. Bach, and G.F. Handel. He can also be heard with the all male chamber choir Chanticleer on one DVD and eight CDs, including the Grammy Award-winning Lamentations and Praises and the Grammy-nominated Our American Journey. Mr. Howell teaches vocal pedagogy at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he is completing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree.
