Noah Stewart, from Harlem to the Royal Opera House (video)

February 7, 2012

Noah Stewart has the swagger of Puffy and the voice of Paul Robeson. Noah’s musical development started in Harlem where he studied classical music at The Harlem School of the Arts. At age 12, his choir teacher encouraged him to pursue a music career; he began doing voice-overs for Sesame Street and television school specials, and won first place in the New England Music Competition in Boston. Stewart attended Fiorello LaGuardia High School. He sang back-up vocals for pop artists such as Hootie and the Blowfish, Mariah Carey, and Coolio. During this time, Stewart developed a passion for opera, and committed himself to pursuing an operatic career. He was recommended by his mentor, the great soprano Leontyne Price, to attend The Juilliard School, where he was awarded a full scholarship.

By the end of his senior year at Juilliard, Stewart was already receiving attention from the professional classical community and was featured in the book Spirit of Harlem by Craig Marberry and Michael Cunningham. He was subsequently invited to début in the world première of Philip Glass’ Appomattox.

Stewart has also been awarded numerous prizes in Mozart’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall, and joining The Metropolitan Opera roster in 2008.

2012 promises to one of his best, with an upcoming performance at the Royal Opera House in England and a new album Noah:
