Originally from the South of Germany, Katie moved to Wellington in 2013 to do her PhD in Media Studies at Victoria University. Her dissertation “Sensing the City – Mapping the Beat” explores the socio-musical and spatial dynamics of music-making in Wellington and Copenhagen. At the moment, Katie works as a Teaching Assistant in the College of Creative Arts and in the School of English and Media Studies at Massey University in Wellington. Besides teaching, she loves to read, think, write, listen and play music from all over the world. During her travels she picked up some Swedish, Danish, French and Spanish but she mainly speaks and writes in English and German.
As one of New Zealand's most versatile young sopranos, Imogen is known for her adventurous approach to modern repertoire and naughty maid character roles. She is a Freemasons New Zealand Opera Artist & Master of Music graduate from Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music. Driven to chase the dream of being a working singer, she recently relocated from Wellington to Berlin. After dabbling in foreign languages through vocal repertoire, Imogen is now learning German through immersion and study with the Goethe-Institut.
