EMMETT O'HANLON

SOLO ARTIST

EMMETT O’HANLON

Irish American Baritone Emmett O’Hanlon was born and raised in New York City. Now 23 years old, Emmett admits to having been seduced by music from a very early age. His foray into the world of music began with guitar, piano and drum lessons when he was just six years old. He first met his longtime voice teacher, Terence Goff, when he turned eight and began formal voice training at that stage. While he was still in High School, Emmett made the decision to pursue a future in music, specifically singing. Since then he has received a Bachelors Degree in Voice from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, where he also performed as a soloist with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Emmet has participated in many classical training programs and has also been an apprentice artist in the Bel Canto Young Artist Mentoring Program at Caramoor.

Once he received his undergraduate degree in music, Emmett attended the prestigious Julliard School in New York, where he has recently completed his Masters Degree in Voice, studying under the tutelage of Dr. Robert C. White Jr. He also recently took part in the “Julliard in Paris” project, sponsored by the Edmond de Rothschild Foundation. Last season Emmett performed in both productions in Julliard Opera’s double bill, Britten’s Curlew River and Vaughan Williams’ Riders to the Sea, as well as in this current season’s Metropolitan Opera workshop production of The Sorrows of Frederick. He has also recently played the role of Onegin in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin.

Emmett is not the only musical member of his family. His mother, who hails from Carrick-on Suir in Co. Tipperary, and his father who comes from Co. Armagh, both sang and were involved with theater from an early age. His elder brother and younger sister have also both studied music at university. In addition to his passion for music, Emmett is an avid sportsman, who loves to surf and snowboard. He is also a huge fan of American football, baseball and most water-sports, which he follows with a keen interest.

Emmett first met Celtic Thunder producer Sharon Browne in New York City, where she invited him to audition for the show. He is a natural fit with the rest of the soloists in Celtic Thunder, young, energetic and extremely talented, Emmett is looking forward to his next adventure as a principal singer in a Celtic Thunder show. He recently began his touring career with Celtic Thunder when he performed onboard the 2nd Celtic Thunder Caribbean Cruise in November 2014, followed by the show’s first ever Symphony Tour. Emmett also joined Celtic Thunder on its Spring 2015 Very Best Of Tour, before leaving the show to join the highly acclaimed The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center, at Lyric Opera of Chicago for the 2016-2017 season as a resident artist. This is such a huge achievement by Emmett and is a testament to years of hard work.
