The first “Aperitivo” concert was a huge success!
The first concert of our new digital series “Titans Rising Aperitivo” went smashingly – our new tech-team did a fantastic job combining beautiful filming and top sound quality for a very enjoyable concert with our gamba consort, lute and soprano.

Summer series “Titans Rising Aperitivo
to launch May 24th

Thanks to the generous donations given to our campaign, which started in March 2020 after all concerts were canceled, we were able to aid a number of freelance musicians as well as set up a new Livestream series for your indoor or outdoor enjoyment throughout the summer. The “Titans Rising Aperitivo” series will employ musicians throughout the summer and be streamed from the church at Lietzensee. You can find the link to the concerts via our webpage or the QR codes printed on the posters hanging in the Lietznesee park! Donations to continue the project—>

Vocal technique database online!

My new database of 28 vocal exercises (for low and high voices) that I use frequently with my students is now complete and online! While my students are probably more familiar with the goals and method of execution for each exercise, anyone is welcome to use it for warming up and advancing their vocal technique.

Digital concert room “musical diary
up and running

Since March 2020 there are no more concerts happening anywhere in the world. Titans Rising has opened its digital concert hall with musicians playing and speaking from their homes. I also post some weekly tips for listening for our early music concert-goers. To the diary—>

Call for donations

On March 13th came the announcement that all concerts would be canceled at least until April 19th 2020. Since this will drastically affect freelance musicians, who earn a considerable amount of their yearly income from the upcoming (canceled) passion season, Titans Rising has joined together with the Church at Lietzensee to raise funds for musicians struggling at this time. Please consider donating to this cause: (within the EU)

Titans Rising finishes 10th for “Best audience of the year 2019”

In a survey by the magazine Concerti, Titans Rising came in 10th place for “Best audience of the year 2019” in all of Germany. In the city of Berlin the fairly new concert series came in 2nd directly behind the Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra – not bad for a chamber music series barely five years old!
