Tenor John Tedeschi is emerging as a needed-voice in the world of opera and classical music. Growing up in a supportive family Tedeschi learned the importance of music. His father, an avid trumpeter and drummer, and mother, a soprano-jazz-singer, instilled in him a strong musical background. Whether his parents were teaching him piano or schlepping him to community theater rehearsals for the many musicals he performed in as a youngster, Tedeschi honed his skills early.
Today, Tedeschi is becoming recognized for his dynamic-tenor-instrument coupled with his captivating stage presence and endearing acting. John has performed with: Opera Theater of Connecticut, Osh Opera, New Britain Symphony, Wichita Grand Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Sarasota Opera, New Orleans Opera, Center City Opera and Eastern Opera of New Jersey. Broadwayworld.com cites: “John Tedeschi mastered the role of Otello, delivering a powerful performance, and lending the perfect blend of musical triumph and drama.” Mr. Tedeschi was privileged to perform Lt. B.F. Pinkerton in the U.S. premiere of Ray Luedeke’s BUTTERFLY’S TROUBLE, a re-telling of Puccini’s MADAMA BUTTERFLY from the perspective of the grown-up son, Trouble. FigandFlan of Theatermania wrote: “He sang beautifully… (his) Pinkerton is one of the best we have seen, and he brings real life to a character we usually see at a distance. He also hints effectively at all the reasons we should dislike Pinkerton while simultaneously maintaining a rosy demeanor.”
Originally hailing from the insurance capital of the world, Hartford, Connecticut, John went on to attend Boston University for his Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance before returning to Hartford to attend The Hartt School for his Masters in Voice. John is also a much-sought-after teacher and serves on the faculty of The Hartt School, and Rowan University, as well as his NYC studio. John lives in the beloved borough of Brooklyn and tries to remain patient while awaiting subway trains!
