Gregório Taniguchi


Gregório Taniguchi crafts compelling performances that move audiences. His dedication to rhetoric in music draws listeners to hear historical works as a dynamic and living part of our musical culture, illuminating classics for a modern audience.


Gregório has empowered narratives with an intuitive sense for storytelling as the Evangelist in Bach’s St. John Passion, Æneas in Cavalli’s La Didone, Miles Zegner in Missy Mazzoli's Proving Up, and Septimius in Handel's Theodora. He has toured to Ecuador with the emerging ensemble Las Aves and presented historically-informed 17th-century Italian and Spanish sacred repertoire in the cathedrals of Quito during Holy Week. He advocates for the intimate connections created by chamber music and regularly presents recitals of classic and contemporary art song. As one of the nation’s finest choral artists, he has appeared with Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Cantus, Washington Bach Consort, Oregon Bach Festival, and Staunton Music Festival.


Gregório is passionate about being an active part of the community of artists, supporting composers in recording new works as a studio singer and faith communities as a choral scholar. He also serves as a language coach, especially in his native Portuguese.
