Taro Tanno

Taro Tanno began his musical career as a boy soprano in the Heinrich Schütz Choir in Tokyo, then attended the Tokyo Metropolitan High School of Music & Fine Arts. There and elsewhere he received vocal training from Sanetoshi Okazaki and Masatoshi Sasaki, recorder with Isao Moriyasu and Yoshimichi Hamada and bassoon with Takashi Yamakami. He then studied voice with Sadako Mine at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts & Music and continued his singing and interpretation training with Agnes Giebel in Cologne, Camille Maurane in Paris, Zeger Vandersteene in Gent and Hermann Christian Polster in Leipzig. From 1989-2001 he participated in the “cycle concerts of the complete works of Heinrich Schütz” under the direction of his mother Yumiko Tanno in Tokyo, where he sang over 450 pieces of this composer or played several instruments. He also sang many oratorios, cantatas and passions as a soloist or ensemble singer. This was followed by a guest study at the College of Sacred Music in Herford, where he studied singing with Sabine Szameit, recorder with Elisabeth Schwanda and choral conducting with Hildebrand Haake. From 2004 to 2006 he worked for the Gewandhaus Kammerchor Leipzig. Since 2007, Taro Tanno has worked as a concert and oratorio singer in Japan, as well as a recorder player and Dulcianist, as well as a choirmaster and conductor.
