People often ask me how I came to sing, and to sing alto.
Perhaps it's because in the Dresdner Kreuzchor, where I learned to walk musically for nine years until I graduated from high school, I came late to the voice change and there I already laid the foundation for my later use of the head voice. Although I come from a purely engineering background, the path to music was now almost inevitable.
During my civilian service in Munich, where I participated in the Vokal Ensemble München and was able to immerse myself intensively in early music, I felt the desire to sing on stage. Mostly I sang in the bass part of the ensemble, but now and then I was also allowed to try out the alto part.
I then resumed contact with my former singing teacher in Dresden and regular lessons, now in the alto range. She referred me relatively quickly to my future professor Margret Trappe-Weil, who supported me with expert advice and some trial lessons.
In 2007, I began my vocal studies, which I successfully completed with a diploma in 2012. Here I had the great fortune to meet Ludger Rémy, an extremely knowledgeable teacher, but above all a great and inspiring person.
Since then I indulge mainly in the so-called early music - concertante, but also in baroque opera productions with baroque gestures - or enjoy myself in the contemporary music field.
