Australian Tenor, John Heuzenroeder is a member of the Ensemble at the Cologne Opera. John has participated in over 50 Opera productions in various styles ranging from Monteverdi to Eötvös. His “Herodes“ (Salome) in Cologne and his recently released CD of the Mozart's Masonic Works with the “Kölner Akademie“ have been very well received.

 

John studied voice in Melbourne where he received his “Bachelor of Music – Honours“. He attended the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan and attained his “Masters in Advanced Opera“ from the RSAMD in Glasgow, Scotland. His career began in Australia performing with the Victoria State Opera, Opera Australia and with the Symphony Orchestras in Sydney, Melbourne, Tasmania and Adelaide. He also performed in many Australian festivals such as the Barossa Music Festival and the Melbourne International Festival. Ultimately he moved to Germany where he has built a very broad predominantly operatic Repertoire ranging from Mozart roles such as Ferrando, Don Ottavio and Tamino through to lyric roles such as Rodolfo and Werther. Other Highlights include Tom Rakewell (Sydney) and Quint (Köln) which demonstrate his particular affinity for Operas sung in English.

 

John was invited in 2012 to join the judging panel for the “Mietta Song Competition“, a special honour because it was this singing Competition in Melbourne that launched his career.
