Singing is the thermal lift for soaring flights of emotion

At the core of the classical voice training under Prof. Christiane Iven is the individual development and encouragement of every individual artist personality with her deeply personal talents and expressive potential.

The imparting of a well-founded singing technique, along with the ability of giving voice to music and poetry with warmth of heart, understanding, naturalness, virtuosity and imagination forms the focus of the collaboration with the students.

For Christiane Iven, profound exploration of all genres (lied, opera and oratorio) and of the music of every period right down to the present day is of the absolute essence.
