Aussie Singer in Berlin can hear church bells pealing and birds chirping through the gold and red leaves outside her Berlin apartment. She wonders whether she may have stepped into a story by Goethe – let’s hope there is not a tortured poet around somewhere or a poet being tortured…
Wish I had audio of the bells and the birds to share with you as well (Aussie Singer in Berlin is unable to continue the conceit of writing in the third person).
I am here in Berlin for 3 months to take up a “New Directions” Finzi Trust Scholarship which is enabling me to study roles and complete a voice type change begun earlier this year after advice and mentoring gained while being a member of English National Opera’s programme for developing young artists, OperaWorks.
I look forward to sharing my adventures in singing and in Berlin while I am here studying with Liane Keegan and having coachings. Let’s see if this new city, new language, new technique and new voice-type gives me a new perspective on things.
