Oliver Camacho

Tenor Oliver Camacho has been praised as “superbly stylish” by the Chicago Tribune, “emotionally generous” by the Chicago Reader, and “pleasingly soft-grained of timbre and attentive to word meanings” by Chicago Classical Review. He is a co-director of the Liederstube, an oasis for art song in Chicago’s Fine Arts Building founded by pianist and author Dr. Eugenia Cheng with whom he regularly collaborates.  A proud graduate of Chicago’s Lane Technical High School where he first learned to sing under the mentorship of George Rico, Oliver went on to study music at Northwestern University, and historically informed performance practice at Amherst Early Music Festival and Early Music Vancouver. Oliver has been a soloist with Bella Voce, Chicago Choral Artists, Bach Cantata Vespers, the Chicago Bach Ensemble, VOX 3 Collective, and Distant Worlds Philharmonic Orchestra. Upcoming engagements include Messiah with Bella Voce and Höchsterwünschtes Freudenfest, BWV 194 with Bach Cantata Vespers. Passionately advocating for classical vocal performances, Oliver is the Creative Consultant of Opera Box Score radio and podcast, is the Editor of the Vocal Arts Chicago blog, and recently joined the host team of WFMT.
