Christopher Hochstuhl

     American tenor Christopher Hochstuhl made his German debut 2019 at Stadttheater Giessen in the leading role of Pilot in the production Glaube.Liebe.Abschied. with music by Poulenc, Bach, Haydn and Bruckner. In the autumn 2021 he is joining the NRW Opera Studio and will be performing in the opera houses of Dortmund, Essen, Gelsenkirchen and Wuppertal. He is scheduled to make his debut with Opera Wilmington as Tamino/ Die Zauberflöte in 2022.


       Highlights of earlier seasons include Lucano and Liberto in Montevedi's L'incoronazione di Poppea with Opernfest Berlin, Oronte in Händel's Alcina at the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival, performances with the New York City Opera in Rameau's Pygmalion and the American premiere of Charles Wuorinen’s Brokeback Mountain. With Opera Idaho he covered and performed Nemorino/ L'elisir d'amore. As an apprentice artist at Bel Canto Festival Caramoor, he appeared in Bellini's Il pirata and concerts. With the Arezzo Opera Festival in Italy he performed Oronte/ Alcina. In 2019 he appeared in Sarasota Opera's Turandot, Die Zauberflöte and Nabucco and performed in concerts as Don Ramiro/ La Cenerentola, Florindo/ Mascagni's Le maschere and Orphée/ Orphée aus enfers. The same year, he made his debut with Teatro Nuovo covering the roles of Giannetto and Isacco in Rossini's La gazza ladra.


       An active concert soloist, Christopher Hochstuhl recently made his debut with the Princeton Pro Musica in Beethoven's 9th Symphony and Vaughan Williams Serenade to Music. Additional concert credits include J.S. Bach's Matthäus-Passion and Johannes-Passion, Händel's Messiah and Mozart's Requiem. He has premiered new-work commissions The Courtship by Valingieri with AnticoModerno, Mass by Fitzmartin and Lux Notcis by Sedek.


       Prior to dedicating himself to singing, Christopher Hochstuhl studied flute and was accepted to Indiana University for flute performance. He is a proud alumnus of the Westminster Choir College, having completed both his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree under the tutelage of Charles Walker. He was featured in the college’s opera company in such roles as Jenick/ The Bartered Bride, Dr. Caius/ Falstaff, Il Tempo/ Il trionfo del tempo e del disinganno, Ecclitico/ Il mondo della luna and Pirelli/ Sweeney Todd. Having completed a focus in voice pedagogy with the Westminster Choir College, he served as the graduate assistant of voice pedagogy and has presented his original research.
