“Sonorous” (Opera News) baritone, Harrison Hintzsche, is a recitalist, concert singer, and ensemble musician. He has been praised for his warm lyric tone, musical subtlety, and dedication to text. In January 2018, Harrison made his international debut at London’s Wigmore Hall in a collaborative art song recital with pianist and scholar Graham Johnson as a part of Johnson's recital series, "Franz Schubert: The Complete Songs," and was noted by Opera Today for displaying a “strong sense of narrative” and “gentle poignancy” in his interpretation of Schubert’s work. He placed first in the Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota's 2018 Voice Competition, and was the first-ever recipient of the William H. Halverson Award, presented by the Edvard Greig Society of America for an outstanding performance of Grieg’s music. 


Harrison has performed and soloed with a variety of vocal ensembles such as The VocalEssence Ensemble Singers, Bach Akademie Charlotte, The Minnesota Chorale, the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart JSB Ensemble, and Bach Ensemble Helmuth Rilling, among others. He is a graduate of St. Olaf College, where he sang and toured with the St. Olaf Choir, and is currently pursuing a masters of music degree in Early Music Voice through the Yale University School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music. Harrison is a native of DeKalb, Illinois.
