Aaron Sheehan

Tenor Aaron Sheehan has established himself as a first rate singer in many styles. Known especially for his Baroque interpretations, his voice has been described by the Boston Globe as “superb: his tone classy, clear, and refined, encompassing fluid lyricism and ringing force” and the Washington Post praised his “Polished, lovely tone.” On the opera stage, Aaron made his professional debut in 2005 as Ivan, in the Boston Early Music Festivals world premiere staging of Mattheson’s Boris Gudenow, a role in which Opera News praised his voice as “Sinous and supple”. He has since worked with the company in leading roles such as L’Amour and Apollon in Lully’s Psyché, Actéon in Charpentier’s Actéon, and as Acis in Handel’s Acis and Galatea. He has sung with Theater of Voices, Blue Heron Choir, Tenet, Fortune’s Wheel, La Donna Musicale, Folger Consort, Newberry Consort, Dünya, The Rose Ensemble, and the Pro Arte Singers. Aaron has appeared on many recordings, including the Grammy-nominated operas Thésée and Psyché of Lully, recorded with BEMF on the CPO label. A native of Minnesota, Aaron holds a BA from Luther College and a MM in Early Voice Performance from Indiana University. He is currently on the voice faculties of Boston University, Wellesley College, and Towson University.
