In concert and oratorio settings I have had the pleasure to perform in prominent concert halls, among them:
-St. John‘s Smith Square, Verdun Cathedral,
-Zürich Tonhalle, KKL Lucerne
-Berlin Gendarmenmarkt Concert Hall, Hamburg Music Hall
-Hadersleben Cathedral (Dänemark)
I also have been honoured to work with prominent orchestras, choirs, and conductors, such as:
-the Prague Philharmonic,
-the Berliner Symphony Orchestra
-the Saarland Radio Orchestra
-the Hamburg Symphonic Choir
-Tokyo Main Choir
-English Chamber Choir
-Scala di Milano
-Guy Protheroe (London)
Furthermore, it's been a great honour for me to be invited twice as a guest soloist of the "Jerusalem Oratory Choir"; the first time for Haendels „Messiah“ as part of the "International Festival of Jerusalem", as well as concerts in Tel Aviv and Haifa, and the second time for Mendelssohn’s „Elijah".
My vocal range of more than three octaves and my special dark timbre enables me to sing a large repertoire spanning from Renaissance to Modern.
I especially enjoy performing seldomly produced works, as i.e. rare "Lieder", crossover projects (Classical music combined with Jazz, Pop and international Folk Song elements) and vocal improvisation.
