Harrison Hintzsche is quickly gaining recognition as an avid recitalist, concert singer, and ensemble musician. The Minneapolis-based baritone has been praised for his warm lyric tone, musical subtlety, and dedication to text. As a DeKalb native who grew up enjoying summer nights at the Dee Palmer Band Shell, he is thrilled to be singing with the DeKalb Municipal Band for his first time.
Harrison made his international debut in January 2018 at Wigmore Hall in London in a collaborative art song recital with internationally acclaimed pianist and Franz Schubert scholar Graham Johnson. Other highlights from this season include being a featured soloist in the premiere recording of Carol Barnett’s Mortals & Angels: A Bluegrass Te Deum with Philip Brunelle and the VocalEssence Ensemble Singers, as well as a series of collaborative art song recitals featuring music from Nordic and Spanish countries with Boston-based pianist Javier Arrebola.
At the age of 12, Harrison discovered his love for singing through the role of “Jo-Jo” in the Stage Coach Players’ 2006 production of Seussical the Musical. He went on to immerse himself in the music program at DeKalb High School, participating in the choir and band ensembles under the instruction of Travis Erikson and Steve Lundin. Harrison then pursued a degree in vocal performance from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, where he sang and toured with Dr. Anton Armstrong and the St. Olaf Choir. Since graduating in 2016, he has enjoyed singing with a variety of vocal ensembles, such as the VocalEssence Ensemble Singers (Philip Brunelle), and the Minnesota Chorale (Kathy Saltzman Romey) while also working as a freelance baritone soloist and arts administrator in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. He now looks forward to continuing his musical journey as a masters student at Yale University starting this Fall. More information can be found at harrisonhintzsche.com.
