MANKATO, Minn. – Aaron Humble (pictured) will join the Department of Music at Minnesota State University, Mankato as a faculty member in August 2016.  Humble, who has expertise and experience in the areas of vocal literature and performance, will direct the University Chorale and teach private voice.

“We are pleased to welcome Aaron Humble to our faculty," says David Dickau, director of choral activities for the department. Dr. Humble performed for 10 years nationally and internationally with the acclaimed professional men's ensemble 'Cantus.' I look forward to the dynamic impact Dr. Humble will have with our students through his teaching, conducting, and performing.”

Described as remarkably virtuosic by the Columbus Republic and transcendent by the Daytona Beach News Journal, tenor Aaron Humble originally hails from northeast Ohio. Versatile across many genres, Humble has performed in opera, recital, concert, and chamber music venues. During his tenure with Cantus, Humble enjoyed solo appearances with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Boston Pops and concert appearances at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, The Library of Congress, Wolf Trap, and the Chautauqua Institute. Humble has also taught at Augustana College (Ill.).

A graduate of Millikin University, Humble holds a doctor of music degree in vocal performance and literature from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. As Humble directs his focus toward teaching, he continues to perform as a recital and concert singer as well as maintaining his work as a clinician in a variety of vocal and choral settings.
