Master of Music, Artistic Profile Voice
The HfM Saar has developed in recent years a concept for her voice students, which in addition to supervision in class and in seminars, establishes a concrete practical relevance at an early stage. Thus, the annual opera projects, which usually take place in cooperation with the Staatstheater Saarbrücken, are also used early on by young Bachelor students. Many students also have the opportunity to gain experience in the extra choir of the SST. In addition to regular masterclasses and guest seminars, projects with old and new music complement the varied offerings. The support on the way to a successful career is the core idea of the section voice.
