Presenting Benjamin Schoening As Ben The Barbarian!

Benjamin Schoening/ The Strongman 

Baritone Benjamin Schoening, hailed as “very talented for his young years,” is one of the up–and–coming musical talents of his generation. Although gifted with a rare and beautiful lyric baritone voice, Benjamin chose to begin his musical career as an orchestral French Horn player and later became a conductor; thus he is beginning his singing career later than most singers do.

Benjamin has enjoyed much success as a recitalist throughout the United States and Europe. Most recently he has performed recitals in the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Minnesota, and Alabama.  His particular area of interest as an Art Song Recitalist is songs in the English language. Benjamin has made appearances with the Racine Choral Arts Society (Wisconsin), Symphonia da Camerata (Illinois) and White Mountain Symphony Orchestra (Arizona) as a vocal soloist. 

Currently, Benjamin is an Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Wisconsin - Barron County, where he is Director of Campus Musical Activities, Director of the Holiday Festival, and Music Director/Conductor of the Red Cedar Choir. Ben finished his DMA in voice performance at the University of Minnesota in June of 2011.
