Elvira Bill (Mezzo-soprano)

Born: Germany

The German mezzo-soprano, Elvira Bill, studied singing with Christoph Prégardien at the Cologne Musikhochschule. While studying for her Abitur in Mönchengladbach, she received significant encouragement in her vocal studies from Reinhard Becker (Wuppertal). Her repertoire ranges from the established classics to contemporary music. She also studies historical performance practice with the countertenor Kai Wessel.

In her solo work, she specializes in oratorio. As a soloist, Elvira Bill has sung under Marcus Creed, Peter Neumann, Robin Gritton, Christopher Hogwood and many other conductors. At the Theater Krefeld-Mönchengladbach she has sung in Friedrich Cerha’s opera Der Riese vom Steinfeld. Concert tours have taken her to many German cities, to France, Austria, the Benelux countries, Italy, Portugal, Hungary, Russia, China and Oman.
