“I simply love singing and taking on projects! You might for example have discovered my voice on Powerwolf‘s ‘The Sacrament of Sin‘, or bought your tickets to the upcoming Ayreon (September 2019) shows where I will be featuring on stage. You might have attended one of my master classes or be a student in my vocal practise. Or you eagerly await any other plans I might have for the future! These and many other vocal projects, big or small make me one happy all-round soprano!”
