Marcel Fässler (Tenor)

Born: Lake Zürich, Switzerland

The Swiss tenor, Marcel Fässler, grew up on Lake Zurich and studied for his training to become a primary school teacher at the Hochschule der Künste: music education and singing with Kathrin Graf and Scot Weir. He received further impetus in Lieder courses with Daniel Fueter and Hans Adolfsen, with Jill Feldman in Early Music, and in master-classes with Paula de Witt and Meinard Kraak. He completed his studies with an exchange year at the Theaterhochschule Zürich.

Marcel Fässler is particularly interested in language-related music from all eras. His scope ranges from Baroque Evangelist parts to contemporary opera. He has been an ensemble member of "Oper im Knopfloch" and sings on various Swiss theaters.

In addition to the work as a soloist in concert and oratorio Marcel Fässler sings in the professional vocal ensemble Corund and the Chor der J.S. Bach-Stiftung St. Gallen, under the direction of Rudolf Lutz, which began several years ago to perform all J.S. Bach's vocal works.
