Bio

Since graduating from Lebanon Valley College, Caleb Flick has pursued a dual career in business (insurance) and music. Following undergraduate studies with Eric Fung, Caleb began a lengthy study of the Taubman Approach with Golandsky Institute co-founder, Robert Durso. This was enhanced by work in master classes with Edna Golandsky and in private study with Dorothy Taubman shortly before her death. Caleb studied French music and chamber music in Fontainebleau, France at the Conservatoire Americain and solo repertoire in masterclasses given by musicians such as Paul Badura-Skoda, William Grant Nabore and Piotr Paleczny. Caleb has performed extensively as a collaborative and orchestral artist, having enjoyed a relationship with Princeton-based Opera NJ as a featured piano soloist, music director and accompanist for many galas and concert performances. He has also worked closely with Grammy-Nominated Baritone Joshua Jeremiah, and with singers from the New York’s Metropolitan and City Operas, the Chicago Lyric Opera, Germany’s Nationaltheatre Mannheim and other leading houses. He has also partnered with the Berks Opera, Reading, PA and served as Principal Keyboardist for the Reading Pops and Reading Symphony Orchestras. As a singer, Caleb first studied as a baritone with the late Thomas Houser (New Holland, PA) before making a recent transition to Heldentenor. In 2013 he chosen as part of a select group of singers to study intensively with the legendary spinto (Italian dramatic) tenor Nicola Martinucci under the auspices of the Mediterranean Opera Studio under the direction of Gioacchino Li Vigni. At Dickinson College he teaches piano, class piano, serves as an accompanist for the school's choirs, coaches singers, and collaborates with the theatre department. He is Organist and Director of Music at Faith Presbyterian Church in Harrisburg, and continues his career in insurance.
