Emilio Haumer was born in Austria in 2001 into a musical Austrian-Colombian family. He has played the cello since he was 7 years old and has already performed as a soloist with different orchestras.
At age 8 he joined the Vienna State Opera’s Children’s Choir, of which he was a member for two seasons. In 2012 he began singing in the Vienna Volksoper’s Children’s Choir until his voice changed. While he was in this choir, he sang in “Gianni Schichi”, “La Bohème”, “Werther”, “Dido & Aeneas”, “A fiery burning furnace”, “Hänsel & Gretel”, “The Wizard of Oz”, “Countess Mariza”, “Carmina Burana”, “Venus & Adonis”, “Antonia und der Reißteufel”, “Feuersnot” and “Carmen”.
His debut as a vocal soloist was in 2014 with the Symphonic Orchestra of Liechtenstein, singing “Chichester Psalms“ by Leonard Bernstein. At that point he also began singing solos at the Vienna Volksoper.
In 2015 he was invited to sing the role of the “Spirit” in the opera “Curlew River” by Benjamin Britten at the Festival Retz in Austria. Another major event was his performance as a soloist at the big gala “Hollywood in Vienna” at the Konzerthaus in Vienna, where he sang the soundtracks of “Maleficent” and “Alice in wonderland” with the RSO orchestra and many well known international artists.
In the spring of 2016 he performed in the opera “The Diary of One Who Disappeared ” by Leos Janacek, in a production by “Opera Fabula“. Immediately after this performance he was invited to Liechtenstein again, this time to sing the soprano part of the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré. During the summer he performed the role of Friedrich in the musical “Sound of Music” in Kufstein (Tyrol) as well as at the Vienna Volksoper.
He was also able to gain acting experience at the major festival “Wiener Festwochen”, where he was invited to perform in a Chilean theatre play named “La imaginación del futuro“.
Emilio now attends the “Vienna Boys Choir” school, where he works on his vocal technique.
In his free time he enjoys playing football and skating.
