Johan Hartman is an accomplished operatically-trained bass-baritone based in Miami. He excels as a freelance performer, teacher, composer, and stage director. Recently, he graduated from the prestigious master's program in Voice at Cincinnati Conservatory of Music
Johan's musical journey began even before he was born, as the son of two accomplished classical musicians. He started his musical education early, taking up the piano at the tender age of five. By the time he was 11, he was already singing professionally as a boy soprano soloist, and at 12, he began playing the French horn, adding to his musical expertise.
As a young bass-baritone, Johan has embraced a range of operatic roles, including standout performances as Bartolo in "Le Nozze di Figaro," Sarastro in "The Magic Flute," Ariodate in Handel’s "Xerxes," Seneca in Monteverdi’s "L’incoronazione di Poppea," Leporello in "Don Giovanni," Pistola in Verdi’s "Falstaff," and Truffaldin in Strauss’ "Ariadne auf Naxos." His versatility as a singer and actor is evident in these diverse roles.
Beyond his impressive vocal talents, Johan is also an accomplished composer. He has created several song-cycles inspired by the works of renowned poets such as WB Yeats, Robert Browning, and TS Eliot. Currently, he is working on a trio sonata commissioned by the esteemed Miami-based performing arts group, Mostly Baroque.
Passionate about sharing his expertise with others, Johan finds joy in teaching music to students in South Florida. He enthusiastically looks forward to nurturing the next generation of music-makers and guiding them in their musical endeavors.
