At Rutgers, Mr. Hill was active in the Rutgers Opera Theater, singing the roles of Joad in Handel’s Athalia, and Secrecy and Mopsa in Purcell’s The Fairy Queen. Mr. Hill was involved with Rutgers’ early music vocal ensemble the Collegium Musicum—a sixteen voice ensemble dedicated to the performance of sacred Renaissance polyphony. Mr. Hill appears on Collegium’s fifth album entitled Vox Patris Caelestis: Music of Tallis, Tye, Sheppard, Tavener, amp; Mundy.
In 2010, Mr. Hill made his off-Broadway debut to critical acclaim (“golden-voiced,” “commanding”) originating the role of the singer in The Last Castrato—a new play by Guy Glass. He also made solo appearances in the spring of 2011 with La Fiocco Baroque Ensemble, singing concerts of Purcell and Telemann, and in the summer of 2011 made his operatic debut in New York to critical acclaim singing the roles of Il Destino and Satirino in Cavalli’s La Calisto with the Vertical Player Repertory. 2011–2012 engagements include concerts with La Fiocco (Telemann, Caccini, and Porpora), a return to Rutgers Opera Theatre as the first countertenor to play Mrs. Peachum in Britten’s The Beggar’s Opera, Arsamene in Handel’s Serse, and Tolomeo in Handel’s Giulio Cesare, (the latter of which will be performed for the Metropolitan Opera Guild in spring of 2012), alto soloist with the Christ Church (Bordentown, NJ) chorus and orchestra in Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis, and various concerts with Vox Fidelis. In March of 2012, Mr. Hill was selected as a finalist for the National Orpheus Vocal Competition, where he won the Orpheus Handel Award.
Mr. Hill is in his eighth year as Director of Music and Organist at the Community Presbyterian Church of Mountainside, NJ where he maintains an active piano and voice studio. Mr. Hill founded the Mountainside Community Chorus in 2011, and conducted the chorus and professional orchestra and soloists in their inaugural concert of the requiems of Fauré and Duruflé in April of 2011.
