Meet a Musician: Oliver Henderson, Tenor



Bloomington, Indiana, is a special city for musicians—visitor or resident, foreign or domestic, famous or little-known. It also happens to be a city with a large university and a large school of music, a meeting place for all kinds of performers, educators, and researchers. This post is part of a photo series that looks at the many people in Bloomington who call themselves a musician.

Oliver Henderson is currently a doctoral student in voice at the Jacobs School of Music. With a specialty in comic and romantic opera roles, including light opera, he explores a variety of music for his voice type.

Yet, as with only a handful of young musicians, he is a man of accomplishment, and not just of the musical kind. In 2006, Oliver biked his way across America, mostly by himself. He kept an excellent and detailed account of the experience in a blog that described the seventy-nine-day journey.

An impressive feat for an impressive guy.
