After 19 years and many choir rehearsals in the girls' choir, I turned my back on the musical city of Leipzig to study singing in Dresden. Currently I still live in the baroque city, but at the same time I am everywhere and always on the road. Often also in Strasbourg, where I am currently devoting myself more precisely to baroque music and am being trained in voix baroque.

I was and am a guest in many ensembles, but at AuditivVokal Dresden, that's one of my favorite places. Probably the most beautiful trips (South America, Netherlands, Armenia), the craziest locations, the most challenging & interesting programs and especially the most (joy&laughter)tearful rehearsals make up the work for me. Since I spontaneously stepped in for Luigi Nono's "Das Atmende Klarsein" in February 2015, I have been virtually part of the inventory.

Using the human voice to awaken people's primal feelings, which everyone has and no one can deny; bringing together art, science, politics and everything beyond, all that AuditivVokal Dresden can write on its banner. For me personally, it is compensation, making music at the highest level, growing beyond myself, but above all one thing: a large, colorful playground.
