Aaron Crouch, a native of Mitchellville, Maryland, was the rare child that has found his passion early in life and has determined himself to pursue it with discipline and excellence.
The youngest child of a musically-talented family, Aaron first began singing publically at the age of six. Seeking the training and technique to push his talent to the next level, Aaron began studying classical music at Suitland High School's Center for the Performing Arts in the 9th grade. Aaron did well at Suitland, being well known amongst his fellow classmates for his powerful and commanding tenor range. After deciding to pursue music professionally, he successfully applied and was accepted to some of the top music conservatories in the country. However, Aaron was offered admission to – arguably the most selective institution of learning in the country – and accepted his place in the 2016-2017 freshman class of the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
As a member of the 26-student vocal studies cohort at Curtis, Aaron has accomplished amazing things in his first year. Not only was he a Gold Medalist at the YoungArts Foundation Awards in 2017, but he also received First Place in the 2017 Sue Goetz Ross Competition, as well as First Place in the 2017 Classical Singer Vocal Competition (University Intermediate Division). Aaron has also won the Rising Star Award from the Fortune Foundation and was named the winner of the Xtreme Teens Rising Stars Vocal Showcase and the Schmidt Youth Vocal Competition.
Training his voice year-round, Aaron continues to cultivate his God-given gift by marrying his natural talent with rigorous practice and impeccable technique, rendering his uniquely powerful and emotive sound.
