German nightingale lands in Windhoek over the weekend
The centre said this week it invites all singers who have a trained voice or are taking lessons, to contact them for singing lessons from the singing icon.
“People, who would like to join the class, should prepare two songs and hand them in as soon as possible at the Goethe-Centre. The class focuses on musical interpretation and language.
There will be sung songs from Schubert, Schumann, Brahms and Mozart. In addition to the chosen eight participants, listeners are also welcome.
During the classes Elisabeth Bogliotti will accompany on the piano.
Heidrun Heinke studied singing amongst others arts under Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and is a multiple prize-winner and scholarship holder.
Numerous concert engagements in Europe, America and Japan as well as comprehensive broadcasting and CD recordings top her career as a successful and committed singer.
Complementing her career as a soloist, she is devoted to singing pedagogics. Many of her students are prize-winners of competitions and had their first engagements or work as successful concert singers, after studying with Heinke. Regular invitations as teacher of interpretation courses result from this work.
The dates for the singing classes are:
Sunday, 02 March from 10:00 to 18:00 and on Wednesday, 05 March from 16:00 to 19:00.
The concert takes place on 5 March at 19.30 h at the Goethe-Centre in Windhoek opposite the Christuskirche.
