As a singer or pianist I am musically active beyond my role as a choral director.
Here are my recent projects.
During a casting in October and November 2010, I was chosen from over 500 applicants to sing soprano with the SonntagsChor Rheinland-Pfalz (formerly SWR SonntagsChor). I was also engaged as the pianist and accompanied the SonntagsChor on the songs that were not a cappella. Singing under another conductor also helped me with my choral directing.

From January to July 2017 I played keyboards in the stage orchestra of the musical production of “The Addams Family” at the “Kleines Haus” in the Stadttheater Freiburg. It was so much fun for the singers, actors and musicians, as well as the audience.
I’ve always wanted to sing in a musical, and was chosen to sing the element Water in the Musical “Sonnenschein” (Sunshine) in Waldkirch-Kollnau. The casting was in March, followed by regular rehearsals from May until the two performances in November 2016.
