Haitham Haidar

Tenor

Canada

Haitham Haidar is a Lebanese-Palestinian Canadian tenor based in Montreal. He is a proud graduate of Yale’s Institute of Sacred Music, McGill’s Schulich School of Music, and the University of British Columbia. Praised for his ‘ductile,’ ‘bright,’ and ‘robust’ tenor, Haitham enjoys performing oratorio, opera, and chamber music across North America, Europe, and Asia. Haitham is also a proud member of Kaleidoscope Vocal Ensemble (KVE), whose mission aims to present vocal music with the highest artistic excellence, while celebrating racial, ethnic, and gender diversity. Haitham has been seen as a tenor soloist on a US and European tour with Apollo’s Fire (Exile: Music of Resilience) and at the Winnipeg Baroque Festival under the direction of Kathleen Allan (Bach’s St. John Passion: Evangelist). He has also been a recent soloist and ensemble member with KVE and Folger Consort, TENET Vocal Artists, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Conspirare. Haitham’s approach to performance has always been humanity first. Being an Arab immigrant in North America comes with its unique set of oppressive challenges and it is because of that and what he sees around him in the field, that he aims to touch people’s hearts with music and compassion and make change in the world the best way he knows how.
