The young Mezzosoprano Alice Lackner studied with Prof. Kunz-Eisenlohr at the Musikhochschule Köln/Aachen until 2015. While still in her studies, she performed various soloist parts at the Theater Aachen, in operas such as Rusalka (Dvořak), Les Brigands (Offenbach) and Jenufa (Janaček). Her repertoire in concert and oratorio spans from the baroque era up to contemporary music.
Alice Lackner worked with teachers such as Brigitte Fassbaender, Gerd Uecker, Robert Holl or Ulrich Eisenlohr. She received a scholarship from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and won prizes at the “Podium junger Gesangssolisten” competition in Essen (2015), the “cantatebach” competition in Greifswald (2017) as well as the Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg (2019).
Since 2017, Alice Lackner has been working on a regular basis with national broadcast choirs (NDR Chor, RIAS Kammerchor, Bayerischer Rundfunkchor, Berliner Rundfunkchor). This work has resulted in cooperations with conductors like Andris Nelsons, Thomas Hengelbrock and Christoph Eschenbach; orchestras such as the Wiener Philharmoniker, NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester or the Freiburger Barockorchester; and concert venues such as the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the Suntory Hall Tokio, or the Festspielhaus Salzburg.
Apart from her work as a soloist, Alice Lackner also performs regularly with her Aix Alma Trio, which has been on tour in spring 2017 and in summer 2018.
Futhermore, she recently founded the Berlin-based trio meZZZovoce, with which she explores repertoire for three mezzosoprano-voices from the Renaissance music up to contemporary pieces.
Alice Lackner is also a dedicated teacher, both in private lessons and as a vocal coach. Since 2015, she has been the vocal coach of the Junger Kammerchor Berlin.
Alice Lackner holds a Master's degree in sociology and is working as a research assistant at the Centre for East European and
International Studies (ZOiS) Berlin.
She recently published "War and identity: the case of the Donbas in Ukraine" together with Gwendolyn Sasse in "Post-Soviet Affairs" (34/2-3).
