About Geoffrey Hahn

Winner of the 2017 Eleanor McCollum Competition Viewers' Choice Award at the Houston Grand Opera, baritone Geoffrey Hahn makes a number of house and role debuts in the 2016/17 season. He returns to the Wolf Trap Opera in June for his role debut as Sciaronne in Tosca and to cover the title role in John Musto’s Bastianello. On the concert stage he makes his orchestral debut in May with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra at Kodak Hall performing the role of Schaunard in La bohème, led by Music Director Ward Stare.

A favorite among summer opera festivals, Geoffrey has been seen in previous seasons as Guglielmo in Cosi fan tutte and Dancaïre in Carmen at Aspen Opera Theater, in addition to covering the role of Delirio in the North American premiere of Florian Gassmann’s L’Opera Seria at Wolf Trap Opera. He debuted with Aspen Chamber Music in 2014 performing Stephen Hough’s Other Love Songs, and returned in 2015 to perform Vaughan Williams’ Songs of Travel. Additional recent performances include Sam in Trouble in Tahiti and Demetrius in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Rice University's Shepherd School of Music, as well as Billy Bigelow in Carousel and Fabrizio in The Light in the Piazza at Columbia University.

In 2016 Geoffrey starred in the award-winning short film Dichterliebe: PoetLove, a reimagining of Robert Schummann’s cycle of songs with text by Heinrich Heine. The film received numerous international accolades, including Best Musical Short at the 2016 Geneva Film Festival, Best Narrative Short at the Hong Kong Arthouse Film Festival, and the Award of Excellence from the 2016 IndieFest Film Awards. As an advocate of varied and innovative performance genres, he was a founding member of Columbia University’s newest all-male a cappella group #|Sharp, and was seen on the theater stage as Konstantin in Chekhov’s The Seagull.

A native of Santa Barbara, California, Geoffrey was a finalist in the Eleanor McCollum Competition at the Houston Grand Opera in 2017 and is the recipient of the Elva Kalb Dumas Prize in Music at Rice University where he is in his second year of study for his master of music degree under Dr. Stephen King. He is a graduate of the Columbia-Juilliard Exchange program in New York City where he received his degree in sustainable development.
