As a soloist, Edmond was a Vocal Fellow for the Tanglewood Music Center in 2022. He was cast in George Benjamin’s Lessons in Love and Violence, performing the American premiere in a concert version of the opera conducted by the composer himself. Hailed for his “pure, guileless high range” (The Boston Globe), Edmond enjoyed exploring the arc of his role as the Young King, stepping into it with “frightening dignity” (The New York Times).
Edmond has performed with LA Opera Connects and New Opera West. Through these performances, he has received praise for the “warm and notably smooth line” in his singing (San Francisco Classical Voice). In 2021, Edmond premiered a vocal piece commissioned by composer Derrick Skye for a recital. The following year, he was invited by Skye to perform a concert version of his opera Ambassador’s Song at REDCAT Theater. This Spring, Edmond will be performing a scene from this piece at TedTalk in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Edmond has had the opportunity to sing under the batons of Grant Gershon, George Benjamin, James Conlon, John Harbison and Gustavo Dudamel.
Edmond received his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Southern California.
