About Richard Lindsey

Richard Lindsey made his solo performance debut at the age of 16 performing in a self-organized benefit concert supporting the tragedies of Hurricane Katrina. Benefiting the American Red Cross in that concert, Richard shared the stage with acclaimed soloists and members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Following his young artist debut, the former countertenor, now tenor, performed throughout Toronto, Ontario Canada.

Richard made his professional orchestra debut singing with the Bay-Atlantic Symphony in 2006, in which he garnered the attention of many and was noted for being the youngest vocal soloist to appear with that orchestra. He is equally at home singing chamber music, oratorio, traditional art song, patriotic folk song, gospel, contemporary Christian, musical theater; in addition to exploring and performing mariachi with a professional band in California. In recent years, Richard has sang at major concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, The Kimmel Center and has also been seen with the Philadelphia Orchestra, featuring the Westminster Symphonic Choir under the direction of maestro Yannick Nezet-Seguin. 

Mr. Lindsey has studied privately with multiple internationally acclaimed opera and Broadway singers including but not limited to Barbara Dever and Sharon Sweet both prior to and while attending the world renowned Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ.

To his credit, he has coached and trained many singers who have won national awards and appeared in leading roles in musical theater, opera and contemporary music productions. Richard is also given credit as having contributed to the vocal talent of Andrew Corkery, who is the lead singer of the rising classic rock band Shadowplay and Video Editor of CBS-3 News Philadelphia.

He is a past recipient of the Thomas C. Lane, IV "I Can" Scholarship for Merit and perseverance in classical voice performance (2007), the New Jersey Foster Care Scholars Award (2007-2012), the Westminster Choir College of Rider University Transfer Scholarship for Academic Achievement (2010-2011) and two NJ Senate and Legislature Awards for Merit and Work Performance in Early Childhood Education for Tri-County.

 

Available by request, Mr. Lindsey performs in concert, opera, musical theater, oratorio and for special occasions like but not limited to weddings, funerals, religious events and receptions.

Lindsey is the founder of Live the Dream Foundation: An Arts Initiative, a pending 501 (c)(3) non-profit arts outreach program aimed towards educationally challenged and financially disadvantaged emerging high school seniors and first/second year college students with exceptional talent pursuing a freelance career in the arts

 

 

Testimonials

 
 
"During my undergraduate studies at Westminster Choir College of Rider University, as a supplemental reinforcement to what I was learning from my applied voice instructor, Richard Lindsey coached me.
 
I cannot say how much our sessions meant to me as a young singer.
 
Richard has a wealth of knowledge that he has acquired over the years. His understanding of the anatomical structure of the body is vast and he can cater his instruction, to meet the personal needs of each student.
 
One of my favorite aspects of our time coaching was how he encouraged me to step into the physicality of singing and commit to developing character. Many of times he challenged me to exceed my level of comfort—through his instruction, I was pushed to a greater level of artistry.
 
I highly recommend him for intermediate, and advanced level singers. Through his
 
systematic and guided instruction, he can mold a voice and help any student reach the acquisition of positive growth."
