I was a member of the Dresden Kreuzchor and gained solo experience already as a boy soprano. I studied singing at the Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber in Dresden with Prof. Christiane Junghanns and KS Olaf Bär (Lied class). In 2005 I made my debut as Figaro at the Lausitzer Opernsommer. This was followed in 2007 by the leading role in the Schlüsseloper (premiere) by W. Krätzschmar and in 2008/09 by Papageno in The Magic Flute. The focus of my concert activities throughout Germany is on oratorio and lied. I am particularly interested in the tension between historical...

I listened to them constantly, they entered my subconscious and shaped my idea of what listening to classical music can do and mean.
I am the son of a mathematician and an engineer, born in a small town in Saxony a few months before the...
We mourn the loss of our ensemble member Jan Heinke, who died on 20 April 2022 after a short, serious illness. Our sympathy is with his family. We will honour Jan's memory - his pioneering musical deeds, his vocal curiosity and his joyful humanity will continue to exist in our ensemble. And he will continue to sing his heavenly overtones in the place where they originated - the angels will certainly be happy about his participation!
I was born in Halle an der Saale and made my first musical experiences in the Stadtsingechor zu Halle. At a young age I participated in the world premiere of DIE DREI RÄTSEL by Detlev Glanert at the Halle Opera.
