Mr. Hogan made his operatic debut as a college student in a PBS televised production of Bemnjamin Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with the Des Moines Metro Opera Festival. His New York debut occurred at Alice Tully Hall in the PBS televised and EMI recording of the “Rossini Gala” with Marilyn Horne, Samuel Ramey, Thomas Hampson, and others. His Australian debut took place at the famed Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia under the baton of Sir Richard Bonynge. He has performed in Europe and on nearly every opera stage in North America. He has won many competitions and received career grants from the San Francisco Opera Company and the Sullivan Foundation. He has appeared on NPR Radio and Live from Lincoln Center Broadcasts.
Mr. Hogan studied voice with the famous Metropolitan Opera bass, Giorgio Tozzi. He has taught professionally for over 25 years. He is a master vocal teacher who understands not only what it takes to have a professional career but how to maintain good vocal health. He helps singers discover and develop their own unique voice. His studio offers a safe haven to all singers who need honest assessment, recharging or a simple voice of encouragement. His voice students currently sing in the United States, Europe and Mexico.
Mr. Hogan trained at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, PA. He also holds a BM and an MM. His vocal teachers include: Giorgio Tozzi, Jerome Hines, Armen Boyajian, Nancy Williams, and Dr. David Blackburn
