Michael Feyfar (Tenor)

Born: 1979 - Switzerland

The Swiss tenor, Michael Feyfar, received his first singing training in the Knabenkantorei Basel. At 16, he received first singing lessons with Christina Aeschbach, soon after the beginning of music studies in the subjects of the horn with B. Schneider in Geneva and singing (as a young student) with Professor Frieder Lang at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Bern/Biel. After two years, he focused entirely on singing. In the summer of 2003, he finished his singing studies in Bern. He had further training by attending in master-classes with Professor Jakob Stämpfli, Hans-Peter Blochwitz, Krisztina Láki, Marga Schiml and Hans-Joachim Beyer.

In addition, he participates in professional vocal ensembles (cantus firmus Solothurn, ensemble Corund Luzern, Mozart-Ensemble Luzern).
