Voice Program in Germany

    • The voice program is intensive and unique. Vocal students will have the opportunity to specialize in opera or in bel canto style mixed chamber groups with art songs that they do not normally have a chance to study at home. Repertoire examples from the past include Barber's Dover Beach for baritone and string quartet, John Corrigliano's Three Irish Folksongs for soprano and flute, Handel: Part 2: No.3 of Gia risonar d'intorno al campidoglio io sento for bass singer, trumpet, double bass, and piano to name a few. Some voice students study arias, duets, or trios with singers accompanied by string quartet for their chamber music assignment. The beauty of their surroundings and cultural experience is ideal for artistic growth.

    • Each student receives two private lessons per week with an internationally-renowned artist faculty member.

    • All participants are preselected into chamber groups and assigned to partners and repertoire choices according to level, matched well in advance. Singers receive two fourty-five minute chamber coachings per week with an artist faculty member with their chamber group(s).

    • German for singers is a diction class that meets 10 times in the duration of the festival and covers topics on German diction as well as elements of the German language.

    • Italian for Singers is a diction class that meets 10 times in the duration of the festival and covers topics on Italian diction as well as elements of the Italian language. It is taught by a native Italian speaker. More info - List of Master Classes »

    • Christa Mayer, voice
      New! Sulzbach-Rosenberg is just less than an hour’s drive to the Bayreuther Festpiele, the famous Opera House dedicated to performances of Wagner. This distance will become much shorter as mezzo-soprano Christa Mayer, the best of the Bayreuth, joins InterHarmony’s Outstanding Guest Artist Series. Ms. Mayer will give an open voice master class at the Sulzbach-Rosenberg International Music Festival, where students in the vocal program will be invited to perform. Students will be given a chance to hear Christa Mayer perform in concert with the InterHarmony Festival Orchestra with arias by Handel, Gluck, and Saint-Saëns.

      Guest performances in recent years have brought Christa Mayer to sing main roles in opera houses in Berlin, Munich, Venice, Florence, Bilbao, Barcelona, Sevilla und Tokyo. Recent engagements in addition to Brangäne in Tristan und Isolde and Mary in Der Fliegende Holländer at the Bayreuth, include roles in Nabucco, Der Rosenkavalier, Tannhäuser, Die Zauberflöte, Salome, and Rigoletto in Semperoper Dresden, and Mahler’s Sinfonia No.2 for contralto at the Opera di Firenze in Italy.

    • Each year, many of the artist faculty give Master Classes on subjects of their choice. The subjects of these Master Classes vary. In the past we have had lectures on Integrating the Musical and the Technical, Projection in Performance, Stage Presence, Jazz Improvisation, Orchestral Repertoire, Eurythmics, Yoga for String Players, and Alexander Technique.

    • Instrumentalists will have ample practice time each day.

    • With concerts almost every night, students are exposed to a high level both from artist faculty and their colleagues as they watch each concert. Students will have an opportunity to perform. Performance is based on approval on preparedness.
