About Me

Born in Hollywood, California, Thomas Truhitte’s parents met on the set of the movie “The Sound of Music” in Austria during the filming. Daniel played Rolf and Gabriele was a stand-in for Liesl. Consequently, once they were married and moved to Pasadena, California and started a family, music and the performing arts abounded in the household. Daniel taught Thomas the ways of Broadway and the musical theatre stage and to be a “Triple Threat”, a singer/dancer/actor which meant tap, singing and performing from an early age including playing the drums for his father’s shows in the pit. Gabriele bestowed a deep appreciation and abiding love for classical music, opera and European culture which meant years of violin lessons and speaking German before speaking English. Once Thomas saw a performance of Wagner’s Lohengrin on television, he gave up any ambition to be a baseball player in order to become a singing actor in the world of Opera and Musical Theater. After earning his Theater Arts and Music degrees at Sacramento State University while taking intensive lessons in vocal technique with Jacqueline Victorino, he accumulated performing experience in opera, musical theater, concert and sacred works from symphony orchestras, opera companies, musical theater productions and church performances in the Sacramento and Bay Area, including a 4 year Artist-in-Residence lead tenor position with Opera San Jose. Mr. Truhitte has now sung over 35 leading roles all over the country and the world including Italy, France, Brazil, Canada and Monaco from composers such as Wagner, Verdi, Puccini, Bizet, Mozart, Strauss and Beethoven. Mr. Truhitte also operates a studio where he teaches voice, drums and piano including online lessons as well as operating a professional voiceover home studio.
