Samuel Rosner is a 19-year-old tenor and composer, enrolled in the joint program between Harvard and New England Conservatory. Before his voice changed, he was a soloist with the Metropolitan Opera Children's Chorus, performing in over eight operas. Throughout high school, Samuel studied both voice and composition at the Juilliard Pre-College, where he sang as the tenor soloist in Mozart’s Requiem and Haydn’s Missa in Tempori Belli. Three of Samuel’s compositions have been performed at Carnegie Hall, and he performed an excerpt from his song cycle, A Kindling Flame, on the NPR Radio Show From the Top.
Samuel serves on the board of Harvard College Opera as its historian, and is also president of the Harvard Din & Tonics. He is thrilled to sing the role of Alfred's in Harvard College Opera's production of Die Fledermaus. Last year, he sang as Don Basilio in HCO’s production of Le Nozze di Figaro, and this past fall, Samuel sang the role of Frederic in The Pirates of Penzance with the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Players. He was also the tenor soloist in a performance of Bach’s Mass in B Minor with the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum.
