Amine makes three role debuts in the 2014-2015 season, Manrico (Il Trovatore), and Don Jose (Carmen), with VeraMusica productions in New York City, and Cavaradossi (Tosca), in Washington DC, after having successfully debuted the roles of Arvino (I Lombardi) in Northern Virginia and Alfredo (La Traviata) in New York City in early 2014. In June of the same year, Amine was a featured performer at the St. Jude Hope & Heritage Gala, the premier New York event celebrating the contributions and culture of the Middle Eastern community and the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He was also featured at the Basilica of St Patrick’s Old Cathedral in New York, part of the summer series festival.


Highlights of the upcoming season include singing the Lebanese National Anthem at the United Nations Concert Hall to mark the 72nd anniversary of Lebanese independence as well as making his New York City solo concert debut. In early 2015, Amine will be featured in two concerts in New York City: Love Duets with Clef Note productions and Il Tenore Canta with VeraMusica productions.


Before his cross-over to opera, Amine enjoyed a career in pop music for nine years. His 2004 television appearance on the LBCI prime time program “This is the Song” (with a viewership of more than 15 million people throughout the Arab world) solidified his presence as a well-known artist in the Middle East. His pop and “popera” repertoire included operatic arias, Neapolitan songs, as well as Spanish, French, Brazilian and Russian folksongs.


Amine has performed live shows and recitals extensively throughout the US, Europe and the Middle East, as well as appearing on numerous local and international television programs. He has sung for numerous heads of state such as the Lebanese president and the King and Queen of Jordan, and has appeared with the National Lebanese Orchestra and conductor Vasily Rolich.


Amine has performed title role in The Phantom of the Opera in Munich, and has played both the roles of Ché and Agustin Magaldi in Evita in Beirut. He has also appeared as Pharaoh in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in Beirut. Mr. Hachem is noted for his charity work with SOS Children’s Villages, Caritas Internationalis, the Red Cross, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Rotary International and the Lion’s Club.


Amine began his musical studies at the age of 5 under his father’s supervision. At 8, he enrolled at the Lebanese National Higher Conservatory of Music and trained as a classical pianist until the age of 18. In 2009, he earned a vocal performance diploma from the Academy of Music and Theater in Munich, Musikakademie München. Since then, he has received private instruction from numerous operatic singers. Amine speaks four languages fluently: Italian, French, English and Arabic, and was a professional soccer player in Lebanon for the team Al-Ahli Sarba FC until the age of 20. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Business from Notre Dame University. In the summer of 2011, he was awarded a trophy of recognition from the Lebanese Navy for his services to music. Amine currently resides in New York City. – avec Amine J. Hachem.
