James Rose is a freshman from Long Island at Harvard College and is thrilled to be making his Harvard College Opera debut as Le Roi in this season’s production of Cendrillon. James is also excited for the opportunity to sing in the show's chorus and to work as its Associate Financial Producer. Throughout high school, James sang a combination of lyric baritone and tenor repertoire and played Aeneas in Choate Rosemary Hall’s production of the baroque opera Dido and Aeneas. He was also the president of his high school’s two all-male a cappella groups, the Kaprophones and the Maiyeros, in his junior and senior years, respectively.
Outside of Harvard College Opera, James is a member of the lightweight crew team, a writer for Satire V, and an Assistant Director for the Harvard Model United Nations conference. As a freshman, he is undeclared, but he hopes to build a special concentration combining his studies of Arabic, Chinese, and international economics. As of spring 2019, James also serves as HCO’s treasurer.
