You have a degree in voice from a conservatory (Diplom/Master) and can demonstrate a distinguished, international career in early music, both as a soloist in concert and opera as well as in an ensemble.

You have extensive repertoire knowledge from the 16th to the early 19th century and a thorough knowledge of sources on historical vocal practice. You are accustomed to reading original notation and historical ornamentation techniques are part of your musical toolkit. Good German and English language skills are required.
