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. His love for Baroque music, art song, and choral music has taken him to world-class stages such as London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Alice Tully Hall, and Seoul’s National Theater of Korea. Recent performances include Cantata Collective’s live performance recording of J. S. Bach’s St. John Passion, led by Nicholas McGegan (bass arias, “Pilate”), Bach’s Magnificat with Jos van Veldhoven and the Oregon Bach Festival Chorus, John Blow’s opera Venus & Adonis with Early Music Access Project (“Adonis”), and Finzi’s In Terra Pax with the Choral Society of the Hamptons. He holds degrees in music from the Yale School of Music and St. Olaf College, and is a native of DeKalb, Illinois. harrisonhintzsche.com

Praised as “fiery, wild, and dangerous” (Classical Voice North Carolina) with “a talent for character portrayal” (Chicago Classical Review), soprano Margaret Carpenter Haigh captivates audiences with her “flawless intonation” and “perfect vocalism” (Classical Voice North Carolina). She is in demand as a specialist interpreter of early music throughout North America and has been featured with ensembles including the Memphis, Winston-Salem, and Portland Symphonies; Messiah Festival of the Arts; Bach Akademie Charlotte; Arizona MusicFest; Apollo’s Fire; Evansville Philharmonic; and her own ensemble L’Académie du Roi Soleil. Margaret resides in New York City where she is a member of the Choir of Trinity Wall Street. margaretcarpenterhaigh.com
