Tenor Daniel Hutchings is a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory under the instruction of Richard Miller. Mr. Hutchings performs extensively with early music ensembles throughout the Bay Area. He appears regularly with the American Bach Soloists, the Philharmonia Baroque Chorale, and Magnificat. He has performed many solos with the San Francisco Bach Choir, appearing in Bach's St. Matthew Passion, Magnificat, B Minor Mass, and various cantatas. He also featured with them as the Evangelist in Schutz's Christmas Oratorio. The San Francisco Classical Voice says, "tenor Dan Hutchings...performed with great sensitivity. Hutchings' high clarion tenor is perfect for Bach's music." Recent solo appearances include: Bach's St. John Passion, works by Charpentier, oratorios by Schutz, Beethoven Mass in C, C.P.E. Bach Magnificat, and many Bach cantatas. Of a recent appearance with the California Bach Society, SFCV said "Hutchings remained focused throughout, his clear tenor easily soaring through the long melismas". Dan also performs recitals with pianist Rachael Hutchings, his wife. He performs yearly at the Carmel Bach Festival, and was one of its four 2003 Virginia Best Adams Fellows.
