New York City based baritone Jeremy Hirsch, who according to the Los Angeles Times “proved a compelling actor and singer” as the exiled poet in Hanns Eisler’s The Hollywood Songbook, enjoys performing a wide range of opera, art song, and concert repertoire. Some of Hirsch’s most valuable experiences as an artist have involved new opera. Some roles Hirsch has created include the title role in Felix Jarrar’s adaptation of Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher, the leading role in the premiere of Shawn Jaeger’s opera Payne Hollow, and the role of Dr. George Burkley in Joshua Bornfield’s Camelot Requiem an opera commemorating the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
Hirsch regularly performs recitals across the country and in Canada. At Songfest 2016 in Los Angeles, Hirsch starred in Edwin Cahill’s production of Eisler’s The Hollywood Songbook, performed tunes from the Great American Songbook with John Musto at the piano, and was a soloist in concerts curated by Martin Katz, John Harbison and Thomas Hampson. He has been a guest artist at Northwestern University, at the historic Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, New York and on the Washington D.C. Embassy Series, performing at the Romanian Embassy. Most recently, he was an Art Song Fellow at the Toronto Summer Music Festival.
Hirsch graduated from the Bard Vocal Arts Program and Peabody Conservatory. He is a student of baritone Sanford Sylvan.
