Kathrin Graf (Soprano)

Born: February 15, 1942 - Zürich, Switzerland

The Swiss soprano, Kathrin Graf, studied at the conservatories of Geneva and Winterthur (with Sylvia Gähwiller), in Frankfurt a.M. and at the Musikhochschule Berlin (with Elizabeth Grümmer).

After finishing her studies, Kathrin Graf started an extensive concert activity from her residence in Zürich. Her concert repertoire of oratorio works ranged from Baroque based (J.S. Bach, George Frideric Handel) up to modern compositions, whose interpretation she took gladly upon herelf. She appeared as a concert singer in Switzerland (Zürich, Basel, Berne, Lausanne, Geneva, Winterthur, St. Gallen, Schaffhausen), in Germany, Belgium, Holland, Austria, in Italy, France, Spain and Portugal, in Canada and Japan with great successes. Above all she was also a Lieder singer, who excelled in this area and presented to her public a very demanding repertoire. She was the sister of the flute player and conductor Peter-Lukas Graf (born 1929).
