Henry Price singsManon: Ah! je sens une pure flamme, with Beverly Sills
A pupil of Eugene Conley, Price began his career in 1970, spending the next few years with minor operatic companies in the New York area. From 1975, he was a leading tenor at the New York City Opera. In 1983, he went to Europe, where he sang in Mainz for two and in Linz for another three years. His 1988 departure from Linz already seems to have been the end of his career.

He was a lyrical tenor, singing roles like Camille de Rosillon, Paris, Tamino, Almaviva, Gennaro (Lucrezia Borgia) or Massenet's des Grieux.

From 1993 to 2018, he was a university professor of voice and opera in Malibu.
