Acclaimed as one of Canada’s finest concert and oratorio singers, Bass-baritone Daniel Lichti, Associate Professor at Wilfrid Laurier University since 1998, performs widely with international symphonic, choral and concert organizations. His presence at major American Bach Festivals continued in 2012 with performances at the 80th annual Baldwin-Wallace Bach Festival, with the Ottawa Bach Choir, celebrating their 10th Anniversary, with Kitchener-Waterloo’s Grand Philharmonic Choir, and at America’s oldest Bach Festival, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He also performed with the Tilford Bach Society in England for their Diamond Jubilee.
No stranger to the opera stage, since his debut at the Stratford Festival in 1974, he has performed widely in Europe and North America with, among others, the COC, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Boston’s Handel & Haydn Society, L’Opéra de Montréal, L’Opéra de Québec, and Opera Atelier. The fall of 2010 marked his 4th appearance with Opera Hamilton and the 2011 Baldwin-Wallace Bach Festival featured him in their staged version of Bach’s charming “Coffee Cantata”.
Adding to his extensive discography, ANALEKTA recently released Hugo Wolf’s Italienisches Liederbuch to follow his critically acclaimed Winterreise by Franz Schubert. His collaborator on these recordings, Leslie De’Ath, and Mr. Lichti, performed a recital of Hugo Wolf Lieder for the Canadian University Musicians Society Conference 2012. He also appeared with the acclaimed Pantaèdre Wind Ensemble and Accordianist Joseph Petric in a brilliant arrangement of Schubert’s Winterreise for Music at Sharon, performed the same work with pianist Roland Pröll in Osnabrück, Germany, and he has accepted invitations for 2013 performances of this great song cycle in Paris and Vienna. Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen with the Argau Symphony Orchestra in Switzerland will add to his European concert activity. Another highlight of the season is his return to Edmonton to perform the title role “Elijah” with the Richard Eaton Singers.
This Juno-nominated singer was one of four judges and teachers featured in the Gemini Award winning TV series “Bathroom Divas” for BRAVO TV.
