New Jersey native Michael Hofmann is a performer, stage director, graphic designer, and arts administrator based in the Hudson Valley and New York City.
Hofmann, a baritone, regularly sings with several New York-based choral ensembles and small opera companies, including The Choir of St. Luke in the Fields, Canticum Scholare, OperaRox Productions, and Opera on Tap. His directorial debut, a semi-staged performance of Bernstein’s Candide with The Orchestra Now in February 2017, was noted as "stunning in its brilliance, humor, and overall gestalt... an astonishing accomplishment" (Millbrook Independent). He has since directed performances with the Kaufman Music Center’s Special Music School, Fresh Squeezed Opera, the Bard Music Festival, and the Bard College Music Program. Hofmann holds a B.A. in music from Vassar College and an M.M. in voice from Bard College Conservatory. He works full-time as the Executive Assistant for the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College.
