The tenor Johan Krogius (*1998) began his musical studies at an early age of three, playing the cello and singing as a boy soprano soloist in the boys' choir of Helsinki Cathedral’s Cantores Minores, with whom he still regularly cooperates as a concert soloist. He began his professional studies at the Helsinki Conservatory, followed by the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki and the Stockholm University of the Arts. He received important artistic impulses by singers such as Heikki Orama, Tommi Hakala, Tuomas Katajala, Neil Shicoff, John Norris and Andrew Watts.

His repertoire includes works of baroque and renaissance music, not only of the opera genre, but also Lied and oratorio, which he performs actively as a soloist.
He worked on several occasions with institutions such as the Jyväskylä Sinfonia, the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra and the Tapiola Sinfonietta.

In 2021, Johan Krogius won the Timo Mustakallio singing competition and was awarded 1st place in the B series at the Helsinki Lied competition the same year.

As an opera singer, Johan’s lyrical tenor could be heard in roles such as Jaquino/Fidelio and Pong/Turandot. In the past season, he appeared at Jyväskylä Opera as 1st Man in Joonas Kokkonen’s “The Last Temptations” and at Tampere Opera as Tamino/The Magic Flute.

In the Summer of 2023 he will sing Tamino at the International Opera Festival in Savonlinna.

As of season 2022/23 Johan Krogius is a member of the International Opera Studio at Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin.
