Henning von Schulman
Henning von Schulman started his singing career in the boys’ choir in Visby, Gotland. He went on to sing for many choirs as a young man, including the internationally renowned Orphei Drängar while studying chemistry at Uppsala University. At Uppsala he also received vocal coaching and decided to devote himself to singing fulltime. He studied voice in Vadstena and Malmö before moving to Copenhagen, where he graduated from the Opera Academy in 2013.
Von Schulman was in the solist ensemble in Copenhagen from 2013–17, where he sang Leporello in Don Giovanni, Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro, Sarastro in The Magic Flute and Banco in Macbeth. He has sung at the opera houses in Cologne and Oslo. He made his Swedish debut in 2017, when he jumped in as Figaro for the premiere of Peter Stein’s The Marriage of Figaro. He frequently sings solo concerts, including both oratorios and lieder, ranging from Verdi’s Requiem to Schubert's Winterreise.
He has received numerous awards and distinctions, beginning directly after his graduation with the first prize at the Otto Edelmann International Singing Competition in Vienna. The next year he won the second prize at the Wilhelm Stenhammar International Singing Competition in Norrköping and in 2017 he received the Birgit Nilsson Scholarship with a concert at the Malmö Opera.
