Biography
Thomas Hampson

Baritone Thomas Hampson hails from Spokane, Washington. He combined the role of The Leonard Bernstein Scholar-in-Residence with that of The Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence at the New York Philharmonic in the 2009–10 season. He has received many honors and awards for his probing artistry and cultural leadership. Comprising more than 150 albums, his discography includes Grammy Award winners, five Edison Awards, and the Grand Prix du Disque. He received the 2009 Distinguished Artistic Leadership Award from the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C. In 2010 he received a Living Legend Award by the Library of Congress, where he holds the title of Special Advisor to the Study and Performance of Music in America. Mr. Hampson was made honorary professor at the faculty of philosophy of the University of Heidelberg and holds honorary doctorates from the Manhattan School of Music, New England Conservatory, Whitworth College, and San Francisco Conservatory, as well as being an honorary member of London’s Royal Academy of Music. He carries the titles of Kammersänger of the Vienna Staatsoper and Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of the Republic of France, and was awarded the Austrian Medal of Honor in Arts and Sciences. Thomas Hampson enjoys a singular international career as an opera singer, recording artist, and “ambassador of song,” maintaining an active interest in research, education, musical outreach, and technology. Recently inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Mr. Hampson has won worldwide recognition for thoughtfully researched and creatively constructed programs as well as recordings that explore the rich repertoire of song in a wide range of styles, languages, and periods. Through the Hampsong Foundation, which he founded in 2003, he employs the art of song to promote intercultural dialogue and understanding.
