At Open Master Classes, opera fans have the exciting opportunity to take a close look at the work of the singers and their instructors. These free events have met with a very positive response.
Indeed, as Liz Mohn points out,
“What good is the greatest talent if it cannot be demonstrated onstage!”
It is and remains the mission of NEUE STIMMEN to open up this opportunity to as many young opera singers as possible.
All Open Master Classes will be broadcasted live via our website!

In collaboration with the Bürgerstiftung Gütersloh (Gütersloh civic trust), we put on a concert for all generations with our masterclass participants as part of the masterclass week.
As part of a civic trust project, Gütersloh residents young and old regularly spend time getting to know each other over the course of a year and are invited to come to the dress rehearsal for our final concert to enjoy an extraordinary musical experience together. It’s a unique and wonderful experience for all who are there – and it’s a particularly special moment for our masterclass participants to be able to sing in front of such an audience. They gain important experience on their way to personal and artistic maturity.Read more
The Master Classes traditionally end with a final concert in the foyer of the Bertelsmann Stiftung before an audience of 350 guests, including representatives of the cultural sphere, business and society at large.
The NEUE STIMMEN (New Voices) masterclass traditionally culminates in a final concert in the Bertelsmann Stiftung foyer in front of 350 specially invited guests from the cultural sphere, the business world and society. This gives singers the opportunity to present their skills before an audience under realistic performance conditions.
Each participant of the Master Class is promoted individually.
Alongside Artistic Director Gustav Kuhn, 2016 we will welcome Michelle Breedt, Roberto Scandiuzzi, Mental Coach Dr. Friederike Janofske and Movement Coach John Norris.
The 10th international Master Class took place at the Studiobühne/Theater Gütersloh from October 18 to 25 2014.
In 2014 it was the first time, people from the "Alt und Jung"-Project from Bürgerstiftung Gütersloh visited the dress rehearsal for our final concert. What an exciting experience for the artists and the audience!
