Dear friends, dear audience,
I am happy to announce some nice projects in the season 20/21 despite the pandemic!
My song recitals at the Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival in July 2020 made it clear to me how important it is to be allowed to sing and that there are possibilities to hold concerts in full awareness of the responsibility for artists and audience.
Of course, all events are subject to the proviso that the wave of infection is positive.
It is particularly important for young people to be allowed to have this sound experience themselves. By singing, one learns to listen to oneself and at the same time to others.
One becomes aware of oneself and gives the soul sound and space. All these are important abilities for mental health and for our entire society. By the way, singing educates and it makes you happy!
This is why I am proud of the work of "Cantus Juvenum Karlsruhe", where, despite the pandemic, around 150 children and young people stayed on the ball online through their voice trainers and choir conductors and delivered a moving result of their work at the end of July 2020.
My students at the Karlsruhe University of Music have not ceased in their striving either and have defied the pandemic impressively.
Now I hope that the recitals with Hendrik Heilmann, Jan Schultsz, Hartmut Höll and Sir András Schiff can take place, that I can work with Antonio Mendez, Maxim Emelyanychev and Paavo Järvi for the first time and that I can make my debut with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington under Gianandrea Noseda!
I hope that our Karlsruhe University of Music can celebrate its 50th anniversary and that interpersonal presence can return to teaching!
Have fun with the details of this website, good luck in life and stay healthy!
