Gregório Taniguchi crafts compelling and unstuffy performances that move audiences. His dedication to rhetoric in music draws listeners to hear historical works as a dynamic and living part of our musical culture, illuminating classics for a modern audience. Contemporary vocal music and new works by emerging composers likewise come alive through his communicative artistry.
Gregório has empowered narratives with an intuitive sense for storytelling as the Evangelist in Bach’s St. John Passion and Christmas Oratorio, Æneas in Cavalli’s La Didone, Septimius in Handel's Theodora, Miles Zegner in Missy Mazzoli's Proving Up, and Jake in Matthew Aucoin’s Second Nature.
Gregório advocates for the intimate connections created by chamber music and regularly presents recitals of classic and contemporary art song. He has toured internationally with the emerging ensemble Las Aves, presenting historically-informed 17th-century Italian and Spanish sacred repertoire in the cathedrals of Quito during Holy Week. He frequently appears with American vocal chamber ensembles such as The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, Bach Collegium San Diego, Clarion Choir, Washington Bach Consort, Seraphic Fire, Santa Fe Desert Chorale, and Oregon Bach Festival.
Gregório is passionate about being an active part of the community of artists, supporting composers in recording new works as a studio singer and faith communities as a choral scholar. He also serves as a language coach, especially in his native Portuguese.
