Fabián Arciniegas, is a versatile Colombian-Canadian singer-actor (tenor) and an intuitive, knowledgeable voice coach. He divides his career between bringing to life a wide range of repertoire from Baroque to Contemporary, and helping artists to reach their singing goals.
Deeply committed as a chamber singer, he discovered a passion for new composers and has successfully toured in Canada and internationally as part of the series Crossing Borders with soprano Maureen Batt and pianist Claire Harris, featuring living Latin American and North American composers.
The 2021-2022 season will see Fabián’s première of composer Chia Yin Wu’s song cycle Blood and the Moon, Leo Herrera’s song cycle Canciones nocturnas, Héctor González’s Pregones de San Antonio, as well as a new tour with Crossing Borders.
After having premièred the song cycle Orbit by Saman Shahi in 2015, Fabián was invited by the composer to perform and record the songs again for his debut album released in September 2020.
He has also premièred works from latin composers Mario Gómez-Vignes and Leo Herrera.
In past seasons he has performed as part of the chorus with the Canadian Opera Company in Verdi’s Aida (cancelled due to COVID 19), Otello and Wagner’s Götterdämmerung and was Le Remendado for Julie Nesrallah’s production Carmen on Tap!
He has performed under the baton of conductors such as Johannes Debus, Kevin Mallon, Derek Bate, Sandra Horst, Miah Im, Andres Posada, Miguel Caballero, Alberto Guzmán and Dmitri Manolov.
