Praised for his “rich vibrant bass” (Opera Today) and “charismatic [and] exhilarating comic flair” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), William Meinert is a 2021 Studio Artist with Atlanta Opera, where he will debut this season as Curio in Giulio Cesare. He is a recent graduate of the Cafritz Young Artist program at Washington National Opera, where he performed Sarastro in The Magic Flute and the Secret Police Agent in The Consul. He recently debuted at Santa Fe Opera as Snug in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and covered Gremin in Eugene Onegin. Later this season, he joins the National Symphony Orchestra and American Bach Soloists, makes his Dallas Opera debut as the Imperial Commissioner in Madama Butterfly, and makes his debut with Tiroler Festspiele Erl as Mordred in Le roi Arthus.

First Prize Winner in the 2019 Houston Grand Opera Eleanor McCollum Competition, William has sung Commendatore in Mozart’s Don Giovanni (Baltimore Concert Opera), Commentator in Derrick Wang’s Scalia/Ginsburg (Opera North), Vodník in Rusalka (Madison Opera), and Le Duc in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette (Pensacola Opera). As a Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Artist, he covered Hjarne and Corbin in the world premiere of Poul Ruders’ The Thirteenth Child. He was scheduled to return to the 2020 Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Artist program to sing Second Armored Man in Die Zauberflöte and cover Vodník in Dvořák’s Rusalka. He has been featured in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Baltimore Choral Arts Society, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 with American Bach Soloists, and Handel’s Messiah with Washington Bach Consort.

A Master of Music graduate of Peabody Institute, William is also co-founder of Parea Series—a digital performance series combining music, innovative theater, and lively discussion—in which he is not only a principal performer but responsible for filming, video editing, and lighting design.
