Joseph Schlesinger

  • Countertenor


Joseph Schlesinger began his music education on the trumpet and finished his Bachelor of Arts in Finance and Asian Studies while playing principal trumpet in the Augustana College Symphony Orchestra, Rock Island, Illinois, USA. Mr. Schlesinger received his Masters of Music in Voice at DePaul University, Chicago in 1999 and sang in the apprentice programs of Glimmerglass Opera, New York and the Pacific Music Festival, Japan. The transition from the brass section to the choir eventually led Mr.Schlesinger to the Netherlands where he received a Netherlands-America / Fulbright Fellowship to study Baroque Music at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague. He is thankful for the support of his teachers, Max van Egmond, Marius van Altena, Barbara Pearson and Teresa Brancaccio.
