Harrison Hintzsche

    American baritone Harrison Hintzsche is a recitalist, concert singer, and ensemble musician who has been praised for his warm lyric tone, musical subtlety, and dedication to text. While enjoying the unique challenge of interpreting music from a wide range of time periods and styles, he finds himself especially at home within the Baroque and art song genres. His interpretation of Schubert at London’s Wigmore Hall with pianist Graham Johnson was noted by Opera Today for a “strong sense of narrative” and “gentle poignancy.” Hintzsche won first prize at the 2021 Colorado Bach Ensemble Young Artist Competition and the 2018 Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota Voice Competition, and was the first-ever recipient of the William H. Halverson Award, presented by the Edvard Grieg Society of America for an outstanding performance of Grieg’s music. He has performed with the Charlotte Bach Akademie, the Handel & Haydn Society, True Concord Voices & Orchestra, the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart JSB Ensemble, Alkemie Medieval Ensemble, and the VocalEssence Ensemble Singers. Hintzsche earned an MM from the Yale School of Music and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, where he was awarded the 2020 Margot Fassler Prize in the Performance of Sacred Music and worked with conductors Masaaki Suzuki, Nicholas McGegan, and David Hill. He holds an undergraduate degree from St. Olaf College, and is a native of DeKalb, Illinois.
