Nils Giebelhausen (Tenor) studied voice with Ulrike Meyer-Krahmer (Münster), Hanno Blaschke (Munich), Anna Maria Castiglioni (Milano) and Wilfried Jochens (Hamburg), his training complemented by master classes with Barbara Schlick and Peter Kooij.

Already at the age of 20 he won a prize at the singing competition held by the Deutscher Tonkünstlerverband, Germany’s society of musicians.

In 1998 he gave his operatic debut in a performance of A. Draghi’s baroque opera “La patienza die Soctrate con due mogli”, conducted by Alan Curtis. In 2000 he sang one of the shepherd roles (pastore) in C. Monteverdi’s “Orfeo” at the Bavarian State Opera, and in 2004 the role of “Blifil” in F.-A. Philidors opera “Tom Jones” at the Bamberg Early Music Festival.

Regular engagements featuring his concert repertoire – especially the oratorios and Passions of J.S. Bach – have taken him to venues throughout Germany, as well as in Austria, Canada, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, the UK, Japan, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and have included numerous CD recordings and radio productions with many European ensembles such as Cantus Cölln, Musica Fiata, Johann-Rosenmüller-Ensemble, Trinity Baroque, Chapelle Rhenane and the Balthasar-Neumann-Chor, and with conductors including Frieder Bernius, Marcus Creed, Thomas Hengelbrock, Pablo Heras-Casado, Konrad Junghänel and Peter Neumann.

The season 2019/20 saw his first cooperation with Ton Koopman, who invited him to sing Bach’s Christmas Oratorio both at the Musiktheater in Linz and the Konzerthaus in Wien. In the coming season 2020/21 they will perform it together both at the Grafenegg Festival  in Austria with the Orchesterverein der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde Wien, and in Los Angeles with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra – his US debut.  Also on his schedule is a European tour with Koopmans Amsterdam Baroque Choir and Orchestra performing Bach’s Matthew Passion, which will be repeated at the Leipzig Bach Festival in the summer of 2021.
