Garrick Comeaux, artistic director of Consortium Carissimi, returned to the United States in 2005 after 25 years of life in Italy and Germany, with extensive experience in early music, both as a singer and as a conductor. He began his musical formation at an early age in piano studies, bass viol and cello as well as private voice lessons. He attended Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota and sang under the direction of Paul J. Christensen, then dedicated his energies to vocal studies at Indiana University Music School in Bloomington. In 1981, he moved to Rome, where his studies in voice continued at the Music Conservatories of Santa Cecilia in Rome and Morlacchi in Perugia. He moved to Munich in 1986, continuing vocal studies and performing as a member of the Bavarian Radio Concert Choir, directed by Sir Colin Davis, and sang in concerts under such conductors as Wolfgang Sawallisch, Sir Georg Solti, Lorin Maazel, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Daniel Barenboim and Leonard Bernstein. Garrick Comeaux has worked extensively over the years with various early music groups, predominately in Italy but throughout the European continent. In Rome in 1996 he founded Consortium Carissimi with the aim of presenting, above all, the sacred and secular music of early Roman Baroque. He holds a doctorate in Theology from the Pontifical Atheneum of Sant’Anselmo in Rome. Comeaux is presently coordinator of Pastoral Care and Social Justice at Lumen Christi Catholic Community in St. Paul, MN.
