About

British tenor Kieran White continues to enjoy success in the UK and is also establishing himself as a sought after artist in mainland Europe.  Recent engagements include work with many of the leading ensembles in the UK and Europe including Amsterdam Baroque in the Netherlands and the Edvard Grieg Kor, Norway. He also performs regularly with the Monteverdi Choir under Sir John Eliot Gardiner and with Denmark’s Copenhagen Soloists. He is particularly associated with repertoire from 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries.

Operatic engagements include the roles of Damon (Acis & Galatea) for Dorset Opera, Arnalta (L’incoronazione di Poppea) at the Cockpit Theatre, the title-role of L’Egisto for Hampstead Garden Opera, Hippolyte (Hippolyte et Aricie) at the Grimeborn Festival, Acis (Acis & Galatea) for Ensemble OrQuesta, Ruggiero in Caccini’s La Liberazione di Ruggiero, Pastore in Gagliano’s La Dafne for the Brighton Early Music Festival, and the Sailor (Dido and Aeneas) at the Grange Festival.

Upcoming engagements include Oronte Alcina at the Grimeborn Festival and Théâtre Basse Passière in Normandy and Castor (Castor & Pollux) with Warsaw Chamber Opera.

On the recital platform, he has performed with Elizabeth Kenny (lute/theorbo) and Zita Silva (Harp), performing with both at the Sherborne Music Festival.  Recent engagements  include J S Bach’s Weihnachtsoratorium (Evangelist and tenor solo) with Collegium Musicum, in Bergen, Matthäus-Passion (Evangelist) with Iain Ledingham, Johannes-Passion (tenor solo) with Bristol Bach Choir, and Matthäus-Passion (tenor solo) with Copenhagen Soloists, John Stainer’s Crucifixion with Edvard Grieg Kor, various Bach Cantatas with Amsterdam Baroque under Ton Koopman, Monteverdi’s Vespro della Beata Vergine with Edvard Grieg Kor, Bach’s B Minor Mass with Bristol Bach Choir, at the Thuringer Bachwochen in the Erfurt Dom and Bach’s Johannes-Passion (Evangelist) in Aberdeen Cathedral and for his debut with the ensemble Gli Angeli, in Geneva.

Kieran graduated from The Royal Academy of Music achieving a Masters with distinction. Whilst at the Academy he held a Kohn Foundation scholarship as a soloist in the Bach Cantata series.  He is presently a student of renowned haut-contre Jean Paul Fouchecourt.

When he is not singing the music of the 17th and 18th centuries around the United Kingdom and Europe, Kieran may be found driving tractors and herding cattle on his family’s dairy farm in Dorset, where his audience may not understand French but regularly moo with great enthusiasm and appreciation!
