Faith Sherman

Acclaimed by the New York Times as a “luminous mezzo-soprano” and praised by Opera News for her “rich mezzo,” Faith Sherman has enjoyed success on both operatic and concert stages. She recently played Catherine in Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc au Bûcher at the Philharmonie de Paris, the Toulouse and Monte Carlo Opera Houses, and Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic. Other roles include Rossweisse in Die Walküre and Beatrice in Beatrice and Benedict at Houston Grand Opera, Smeaton in Anna Bolena with Welsh National Opera, the Pilgrim in L'Amour de loin with English National Opera, Concepción in L’heure espagnole at Oper Frankfurt, and the mezzo-soprano lead in Ricky Ian Gordon’s world premiere Rappahannock County at Virginia Opera. Faith’s portrayal of Erminella in Musto’s Volpone with Wolf Trap Opera earned her a GRAMMY nomination. Ms. Sherman won the Houston Grand Opera Competition in 2007, and was a semi-finalist in the Metropolitan Opera Competition, the Neue Stimmen Competition, and Plácido Domingo’s Operalia Competition. She holds degrees from Eastman School of Music, Cincinnati Conservatory, and the Juilliard School. Faith teaches voice lessons at Charleston Voice Studio.
