Hayden's love of Classical music led him to start singing lessons at 7 years old. Following his first time on stage in the Children's Chorus of Bizet's Carmen, he decided that singing would always be a part of his life. He performed in the Trinity Grammar Chapel Choir throughout school, where he also appeared in his first professional production with Opera Australia in the Children's Chorus of A Midsummernight's Dream. Hayden graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music (Performance) in 2017. He regularly appears as a soloist in oratorios (Messiah, Mozart Requiem), in opera (La Boheme, English Eccentrics, The Cunning Little Vixen), and as a professional ensemble singer with the Australian Brandenburg Choir and St Andrew's Cathedral. He started working with The Song Company in 2019 and is proud to be an inaugural Ensemble Artist with the company in 2020.
