Andrew Fuchs

Tenor Andrew Fuchs’s wide-ranging repertoire includes an abundance of early music, most notably the works of Bach and Monteverdi, which he has sung with such groups as Pegasus Early Music, Tenet, Artek, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, and New York Polyphony (with whom he recorded Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli for BIS Records). He recently made his Kennedy Center debut in Monteverdi’s Vespers with The Thirteen and his Lincoln Center debut in Bach’s Magnificat with the American Classical Orchestra. Equally passionate about the music of today, Andrew has premiered a number of works, including the principal role of ME in Daniel Thomas Davis’s chamber opera Six. Twenty. Outrageous with American Opera Projects; Alexander Goehr’s song cycle Verschwindenes Wort for The Juilliard School’s Focus Festival; and Zachary Wadsworth’s oratorio Spire and Shadow with Downtown Voices. Other recent highlights include Steve Reich’s Three Tales at Disney Hall and Daniel Variations at Miller Theatre with Ensemble Signal, St. John Passion Evangelist with the Kent Singers, Brahms’s Liebeslieder Waltzes with the Mark Morris Dance Group, Vaughan Williams’s On Wenlock Edge with the Momenta Quartet, and appearances with Lyric Fest and Montreal’s Ballet-Opéra-Pantomime. Andrew’s love of the song repertoire led him to Stephanie Blythe and Alan Louis Smith’s Fall Island Vocal Arts Seminar, and the Tanglewood Music Center, where he coached with Dawn Upshaw and Håkan Hagegård. He holds degrees from Stony Brook University and the University of Kansas.
