Countertenor Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen joins Étude Arts for General Management

It is with great excitement that Étude Arts announces the general management of Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen.

Described by Zachary Woolfe in The New York Times as a “complete artist,” the 23-year-old American countertenor is one of opera’s most promising rising stars and, in his breakout 2016-2017 season, Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen was awarded the Grand Prize of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and was the recipient of a Sara Tucker Study Grant from the Richard Tucker Music Foundation, First Prize winner of the Houston Grand Opera Eleanor McCollum Competition, and winner of the Irvin Scherzer Award from the George London Foundation.

Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen participated in the Merola Opera Program at San Francisco Opera in 2016, and, in the summer of 2017, he joined Wolf Trap Opera as a Studio Artist.  He becomes the first countertenor in the history of the Houston Grand Opera Studio, when he joins the company for the 2017-18 season and future engagements bring him to leading operatic and concert stages across North America and Europe.
