Christa Bonhoff (Contralto)

Born: Germany

The German contralto, Christa Bonhoff (Bohnhoff), received piano instruction when she was 11 years old. A further musical milestone was the C-training for church musicians. After high-school she studied singing at the Hochschule für Musik in Hamburg with Professor Annie Schoonus, as well as courses of Lieder, oratorios, opera and singing teaching.

Already during her studies, Christa Bonhoff made guest appearances of notice at the Hamburg State Opera. However she shifted her emphasis on the concert platform. Numerous broadcast and television programmes and CD's have emerged. Concert engagements have led her throughout Germany.
