Daniel Hendrick - Tenor, Composer

They Call Him “Mr. Amazing”!

Whether exciting audiences at New York’s acclaimed Lincoln Center or thrilling the critics at the world’s major opera houses, tenor and composer Daniel Hendrick has become a premier presence on the professional stage today. He has received uncounted standing ovations in performing arts centers in a wide variety of locations, including New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, Bonn, Istanbul, Tokyo, Seoul, Paris, Vancouver, and Mexico City.

Daniel’s powerful voice has been alternately described as “rich”, “lyrical”, “soaring”, “powerful” and “impressive.” He’s been lauded by the New York Times for cutting “an impressive figure onstage.” The greatest voices in the world, including James Morris, Ruth Ann Swenson, Thomas Hampson, Elizabeth Futral, Jerome Hines, and Carol Neblett have been delighted to sing opposite him.

Singing in major opera houses didn’t always come naturally for Daniel, though. Having lost his voice at age 22 at a Milan competition, he consulted with doctors upon returning to San Diego. Despite their frantic efforts to diagnose the problem, Daniel was left with an overwhelming talent…and a frustrating inability to present it to the world.

Support dwindled as fans and “friends” slowly disappeared. Increasingly discouraged, he contemplated other careers and found none that matched his love of music. He turned in desperation to his faith for answers to the most difficult question of his life – how could he survive without his voice?

Daniel Hendrick has always been a strong man who knows anything is possible when you put your mind to it. Believing to his very core that God had given him his voice for a reason, he persevered. After ten years of painfully hard work he brought his gift to New York City.

His debut generated a standing ovation and rave reviews by the New York Times. This second chance was to be the beginning of a lifetime of performances worldwide.

Then tragedy struck again a decade later as Daniel and his wife of 17 years divorced, leaving Daniel to do a solo act raising three sons. Taking a leave of absence from opera, Daniel dedicated himself completely to his family’s needs.

His life today has regained a sense of stability, with his wife Pilar MontaƱo by his side and his sons now healthy young men ready to take on the world on their own terms.

Despite a lifetime of sometimes severe challenges, Daniel has combined an immense talent with a belief that his God-given gift must be shared. Blending the two has led him to his third triumphant return to the stage to once again fulfill his passion and calling: to inspire the people of the world with his powerful Tenor voice.

From Mozart to Verdi, San Diego to Baltimore, on stage and on television, the voice seen by many as the true successor to his coach, Giuseppe Di Stefano, has starred in La Boheme (Rodolfo), Mefistofele (Faust), Madama Butterfly (Lt. Pinkerton), Hamlet (Laertes), Don Giovani (Don Ottavio), Magic Flute (Tamino), Carmen (Don Jose) and an extensive number of other roles around the globe.

Daniel also has sung leading roles with the San Francisco Opera, Bonn Opera, Detroit Symphony, Baltimore Opera, Vancouver Opera, New Orleans Opera, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and most recently the Istanbul Symphony, broadcast nationally on Turkish Television.

See for yourself how a promising talent once dismissed as a “has-been” has risen to rave reviews by the harshest critics in the entertainment world.
