Dan Mihaescu, Baritone
Born of Brazilian and Romanian immigrants, Dan Mihaescu was recognized for his vocal talents as early as age nine. He was frequently selected for public performances and encouraged to formally develop his natural abilities. Prior to beginning any training, he received praise from faculty at Lawrence University and scholarships from the Royal Oak Musicale. Mihaescu attended the University of Michigan School of Music as well as the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. He graduated with two bachelor degrees in 1997. It was in Ann Arbor that he began his two decade long relationship with Dr. Willis Patterson to develop his vocal technique. While his voice began as a lyric tenor, he is now a dramatic baritone. His repertoire spans the light and lyric chansons of Faure to the powerful arias of Verdi. His dedication to mastering vocal technique has given Mihaescu a broad palette from which to create natural and effortless melodies for his admirers. Although his voice and technical training could allow Mihaescu to perform internationally, his fifteen year career as a financial advisor with Ameriprise Financial, Inc. keeps him in Michigan. He also values the time he can spend with his lovely wife and son. More information about Dan Mihaescu can be found on his Facebook Page and at www.baritoneonline.com.
