The young mezzosoprano Alice Lackner is internationally acclaimed as an opera, concert and song performer. 

 

She worked as a soloist with orchestras such as the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt (Oder) or the L'Orfeo Barockorchester, and she gave her debut in the Berlin Philharmonie together with the Collegium Musicum and Donka Miteva. 

In September 2019, she will again be performing in the Berlin Philharmonie as well as in  the Sala Palatului (Bukarest), singing with the RSB orchestra and the Rundfunkchor Berlin, conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.

 

As an opera singer, she recently performed the role of Nancy (Martha/Flotow) as a laureate of the Rheinsberg Kammeroper Festival. Furthermore, 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).

 

Alice Lackner studied with Prof. Kunz-Eisenlohr at the Musikhochschule Köln/Aachen until 2015 and worked with teachers such as Brigitte Fassbaender, Gerd Uecker, Robert Holl and 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 ensembles such as the NDR Chor, RIAS Kammerchor, Bayerischer Rundfunkchor, and the Berliner Rundfunkchor. This work has resulted in collaborations with conductors like Riccardo Muti, Andris Nelsons or René Jacobs; orchestras such as the Wiener Philharmoniker, Berliner Philharmoniker or the Freiburger Barockorchester; and concert halls such as the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the Paris Philharmonie, or the Suntory Hall Tokyo.

 

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: since 2015, she has been the vocal coach of the Junger Kammerchor Berlin. 

She 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 (www.zois-berlin.de).
