About

Steven Tharp has been praised by Opera News for the "bel canto flexibility and sweetness" of his voice, while the New Yorker has described his voice as “strong, free, and forward in tone, verbally sure, lyrical in utterance.” In the 2017-18 season he sings as soloist in Handel’s Foundling Hospital Anthem with the Grand Rapids Symphony and in Haydn’s The Creation with the Wichita Symphony Orchestra.

Recently he sang Britten’s War Requiem with the Winnipeg Symphony, Verdi’s Requiem under the auspices of the Defiant Requiem Foundation in New York and Oklahoma City, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Wyoming Symphony.
