About Katrin Baehre

Katrin Bähre (soprano) was a German national prizewinner in the 1993 “Jugend musiziert” competition. There followed numerous concert engagements, including the “Junge Solisten” series in the Kammerphilharmonie in Berlin. Bähre studied with Hildegard Kronstein-Uhrmacher and Hans Sotin in Detmold and Cologne. Already during her studies, she was engaged to perform in the theaters in Weimar and Detmold. From 2001–2007, Katrin Bähre was a member of the Koblenz opera ensemble, where she sang roles such as Pamina (“The Magic Flute”), Agathe (“Der Freischütz”), Tatiana (“Eugene Onegin”), Marie (“The Bartered Bride”), and Freia (“Das Rheingold”). Since 2007, she has been a free-lance concert performer and singing teacher. Bähre has been invlolved with contemporary music since her student days in Detmold and first performed with Ensemble Horizonte in 1998. She has always been fascinated by the rich expressive possibilities – in addition to merely “beautiful” singing – offered by this music. Her repertory includes the experimental vocal techniques proposed in works by Pagh-Paan, Berio, and Schnebel, as well as more traditional idioms, as in the music of Arvo Pärt.
