Miles Mykkanen has garnered recognition on the world’s concert and operatic stages for his “focused, full-voiced tenor” (The New York Times). Of his performances in Eugene Onegin at the Juilliard School, Opera News wrote, “Mykkanen was a knockout as Lensky. The lyric intensity of his singing made each moment count, and the duel- scene aria was a stretch of sheer vocal gold.”
The 2016-2017 season sees Miles Mykkanen performing the title role in a fully- staged production of Bernstein’s Candide with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and Belmonte in Opera Columbus’ new production of Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail. He makes his debut with the St. Thomas Church 5th Avenue Choir of Men and Boys and Concert Royal in performances of Händel’s Messiah and returns to the recital stage with Steven Blier under the auspices of the New York Festival of Song.
