A 2021-22 Resident Artist with Opera Columbus, Nate Ben-Horin divides his work as a pianist and vocal coach between the United States and Canada. A former solo student of Jeremy Denk, he recently completed a master’s degree in collaborative piano at McGill University with Michael McMahon and Stephen Hargreaves, and has received additional training from Highlands Opera Studio, Lachine Vocal Academy, and the CoOperative Program. As an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, he won the 2014 Austin F. William Prize in piano performance and was subsequently hired as a staff pianist and assistant choral director. He has worked widely with local singers and instrumentalists in the San Francisco area, including the Jewish Folk Choirs of San Francisco and Berkeley, and several consecutive seasons with West Edge Opera variously as repetiteur, harpsichordist, choirmaster, and promotional recitalist. He is currently a proud co-curator, arranger, and pianist of The Shoah Songbook, a digital recital series which highlights rare music from the Holocaust.
