Ghost Light PodcastEpisode 6.06 – John Holiday

Co-hosts Carol Anderson and Jeff Counts sit down with John Holiday prior to his Utah Opera debut in his signature role in Jonathan Dove and April de Angelis’ Flight.

Many, not familiar with the opera world will know John Holiday from season 19 of NBC’s The Voice. John is one of the most sought-after countertenors (a cis-male that sings in a mezzo-soprano range) in the opera scene.

John shares anecdotes about his career as an artist and educator in a pandemic world.

One of the gems of the discussion was around John’s TEDx talk, “The Monsters Under My Bed,” that focuses on family dynamics and how you can find your worth, despite the situation. You can find that talk here.

Does John have a story that he would like to see set as an opera? Find out in this amazing conversation with John Holiday.
