Julie SEKINGER  Soprano
 
  BIOGRAPHY  

 

In autumn 2022 Julie Sekinger made her successful debut as ANNA REICH in “Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor” at the Dresden State Operetta.

Since the season 2021/22 she is a member of the Osnabrück Theater where she can be seen in such roles as ADELE in “Die Fledermaus”, TEBALDO in “Don Carlo”, LENIO in “Greek Passion” or, ROSETTE in “Fremde Erde”.

In 2020 the 26 years-old talented soprano succeeded in reaching the second finals of the Berlin Singing Contest, where she made a huge impression. Her portrayal of Donizetti’s RITA was concealed due to the COVID19 pandemic. Julie sang GRETEL in Humperdinck’s “Hänsel & Gretel” at the Gallustheater Frankfurt/Mai, she was PAMINA in Mozart’s “Die Zauberfötever” at the Bad Vilbel Festival and sang in Britten’s “Paul Bunyan” at the Frankfurt Opera.

In 2021 Julie Sekinger finished her singing master studies at The Frankfurt Academy for Music and Performing Arts with Ursula Targler-Sell. Besides she attended master classes with Helmut Deutsch and Brigitte Fassbaender. While still studying, she already got the opportunity to gain experience in university productions as SUSANNA in Mozart's »Le nozze di Figaro«, SOPHIE in Strauss' »Der Rosenkavalier«, MUSETTA in Puccini's »La Bohème« and LEONORA in Hindemith's »The Long Christmas Dinner«.

Julie is scholarship holder of the artemusica-Foundation (2020), winner of a »Gold Medal High Distinction« of the Manhattan International Music Competition (2019), sholarshipholder of the Rotary Club Old Opera Frankfurt am Main, of the Walter & Charlotte Hamel Foundation, the Richard-Wagner-Association Frankfurt, the Daponte-Foundation, Omodeo-Foundation (all in 2018), as well as scholarship holder of the Bach Concerts Frankfurt (2017).

In 2024 she sings in the SWR OPERA GALA “YOUNG OPERA STARS”.

 

 
 
 
REVIEWS
 
Theater Osnabrück - Griechische Passion - LENIO
(..) whereas Julie Sekinger as Lenio is emotionally touching and convinces with her lyrical soprano voice.

Theater Osnabrück – Don Carlo - TEBALDO
One would like to see the ravishing Julie Sekinger, who unfortunately has too little stage presence in the role of Tebaldo but can shine as the voice from above, in a bigger part.

From all the minor roles, the angel-like voices of Julie Sekinger and... are the most impressive.

Symphony concert with Osnabrücker Symphonieorchester – Mozart-Messe
...Julie Sekinger’s inspired Mozart voice... But the highlight of the concert definitively was the „Et incarnatus“. ..... unutterably tenderly and touchingly sung by Julie Sekinger. What a Mozart voice: young, fresh, pleasant and soft, not a trace of sharpness. Her lyrical, deeply inspired singing is perfectly accompanied by the solo winds.

Theater Osnabück – Die Flerdermaus - ADELE
The biggest discovery was new singer in the ensemble, Julie Sekinger as Adele. Sekinger presents a self-confident, perky waiting-maid on stage, radiates with precise coloraturas and high peaks.
Kulturfeder Dominik Lapp
Theater Osnabück – Fremde Erde - ROSETTE
Erik Rousi as Father Guranoff, Julie Sekinger as the calculating servant Rosette and above all Mark Hamman as Rosenberg,(…) stand out from the vast ensemble.
