Virtual Speaker Series- May 26th - James Harrington

Praised by Broadway World as “a compelling actor” with a “rich and powerful bass voice,” James Harrington is a versatile artist whose performance credits span the jazz, pop, orchestral, and opera stages. A former Apprentice Singer at Santa Fe Opera, he made his company debuts in Strauss’ Capriccio and Puccini’s La fanciulla del West, and has also appeared with Portland Opera, Nashville Opera, Opera New Jersey, Opera Idaho, Opera in the Heights, and St. Petersburg (FL) Opera, among others.

 

Before becoming an opera singer, Harrington began his professional music career as a 4-year member of the Cape Cod-based a cappella group Hyannis Sound, and was a member of award-winning group Groove, as well as Mutual X, who were the alternates for the first season of NBC’s The Sing Off. He was also a regular substitute in popular groups Ball in the House and Home Free.

 

He spent almost seven years working in the music industry in Nashville, both for major record labels/publishers (EMI CMG and Naxos) and with artists (Gungor, Sanctus Real, Matt Hammitt), a magazine (HM) and a music festival (Cornerstone).

 

Harrington is a Paul J. Collins Wisconsin Distinguished Fellow and doctoral student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the author of Building a Career in Opera from School to Stage: Operapreneurship (Routledge, 2020), a forthcoming book on building opera careers, and is a regular conference presenter on topics related to professional preparation of singers and arts entrepreneurship. He previously earned degrees from Florida State University (M.M. Voice) and Berklee College of Music (B.M. Music Business/Management).

New England Base Camp is dedicated to serving families by providing programs and resources that enable and empower communities to work together to raise children of character. Typically, we do this through our interactive Outdoor Education, STEM and civic resources. However, throughout the “Stay at Home” season we have adapted those resources to meet needs of youth and families through virtual programs. One of those programs is our Virtual Speaker Series.

The programs can be used to enhance your child’s extracurricular activities or educational objectives. New England Base Camp is founded on the principals of the BSA curriculum and supports Scouts throughout all our programs. New England Base Camp seeks to build and support a diverse community of people who come from and interact with folks from every community we serve. Every person who participates in New England Base Camp has a right to expect an environment that is welcoming and values the richness of their lives and experience.

Each session is free, but space is limited, so be sure to register online.
