John Holiday in Recital
2017 Marian Anderson Vocal Award winner
Named for the groundbreaking African American contralto, the Marian Anderson Vocal Award recognizes a young American singer in opera, oratorio, or recital repertory with outstanding promise for a significant career. Given annually by the Kennedy Center, the award offers a cash prize, a residency at Washington's Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and a recital co-presented by WNO and the Kennedy Center's Fortas Chamber Music Concerts. This year's winner, gifted countertenor John Holiday, has been hailed by the New York Times as "an exceptional singer with a strong voice, even in its highest range." Prior recipients include Denyce Graves, Eric Owens, Lawrence Brownlee, Janai Brugger, and many others.
