Lena Susanne Norin
After studying singing in Stockholm, Lena Susanne Norin specialized early music, training with René Jacobs and Dominique Vellard at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland. During these formative years she performed and recorded extensively with the Ferrara ensemble. Following her studies she taught voice at the Schola Cantorum from 1986 to 1990, and has since then continued to teach.
Lena Susanne Norin is much sought after as a concert and oratorio singer around Europe, performing a vast array of music written from 1100 to 1900. During over two decades she has worked and recorded extensively with numerous renowned European ensembles: Ferrara Ensemble, Ensemble Gilles Binchois (medieval and renaissance chant and chanson), Sequentia (since 1987), La Chapelle Royale, Akantus, Rheinische Kantorei, Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Akademie für Alte Musik, Musica Antiqua Köln, Cantus Cölln. International tours have led her to Europe and the USA, Asia and South America.
Lena Susanne also performs Scandinavian traditional music with Ulv, a trio with Agnethe Christensen and Elizabeth Gaver. While she is most eminent in the field of early music, she is by no means a stranger to the romantic repertoire, having sung the part of Erda in the 2002 produktion of Wagner´s Das Rheingold at the Stockholm Folk Opera.
New courses for 2013 are listed here.
