A member of the voice faculty of the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati since 2015, tenor Daniel Weeks has garnered acclaim for his Italianate voice and adroit musicianship. Having sung with the symphonies of Houston, Dallas, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Columbus, Memphis, Dayton, San Jose, Rochester, South Dakota, Louisville, Huntsville, the National Youth Symphony of Venezuela, and the National Orchestras of Mexico and Costa Rica, Mr. Weeks is equally adept on the operatic stage, where he has performed with Florentine Opera, the Cincinnati Opera, the Kentucky Opera, Nevada Opera, Mercury Opera, and San Francisco Opera’s Western Opera Theater. In 1999, he was named the NFMC Young Artist, and was a National Finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. In 2000, the Marilyn Horne Foundation presented him in a New York Recital, followed by three years of concerts across the US with pianist Donna Loewy. In the summer of 2017, Mr. Weeks taught at the Miami Choral and Voice Institute, and also joined the faculty of Lingua e Canto, in Sant’Angelo in Vado, Italy.
Recent engagements include the National Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in Luigi Nono’s, Intolleranza 1960, Kentucky Symphony in Puccini’s Turandot, and the Symphony Orchestra of Augusta in Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. In 2018, Mr. Weeks will join the voice faculty of the Savannah Choral and Voice Institute, sponsored by the Cincinnati Fusion Ensemble, and will sing Verdi’s Requiem with the Las Cruces Symphony and the role of Evangelist in Bach’s St. John’s Passion, at CCM.
