My name is Fabian Arciniegas, I’m a versatile Colombian-Canadian singer-actor.
I have the privilege of bringing to life a wide range of repertoire from Baroque to Contemporary.
Deeply committed as a chamber singer, I discovered a passion for new composers. I have successfully toured in Canada and internationally as part of the series Crossing Borders with the soprano Maureen Batt and the pianist Claire Harris, featuring living Latin American and
North American composers.
In the 2021-2022 season I premiered composer Chia Yin Wu’s song cycle Blood and the Moon, and Leo Herrera’s song cycle Canciones nocturnas. I also created and performed the concert The Colores as a way to engage people with classical and contemporary repertoire
through storytelling. I recently was part of the workshop for the opera Inertia with Loose Tea Theatre. After having premiered the song cycle Orbit by Saman Shahi in 2015, I was invited by the composer to perform and record the songs again for his debut album released in September
In past seasons, I performed as part of the chorus with the Canadian Opera Company in Verdi’s Aida (canceled due to COVID 19), Otello and Wagner’s Götterdämmerung and as Le Remendado for Julie Nesrallah's production Carmen on Tap! I have 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. I hold a Master's Degree in Opera Performance from the University of Toronto.
Claire Harris, pianist

Prior to moving to Toronto, she was a staff accompanist at the Royal College of Music, London, as well as working with companies
including English Touring Opera, the Rossini Young Artists' Festival and the Academie de La Roche D'Hys annual opera workshop.
