The German soprano, Maria Regina Heyne, began her singing studies in 1987 with Professor Elisabeth Ksoll at the Musikhochschule Aachen. 1991 she moved to the Musikhochschule Köln, in order to continue her studies with Professor Liselotte Hammes. In 1994 she finished these with the artistic maturity examination. Subsequently, she completed a structure studies course of "new music" with Professor Hanna Liska-Aurbacher at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart. In addition she trained herself further by participating in master-classes with Edith Mathis, Barbara Schlick and Kurt Widmer.
Maria Regina Heyne belonged to the opera ensemble of the Theater Aachen from 1995 to 1996 as soloist, where she sang Zerlina in Don Giovanni and Pamina in Zauberflöte by Mozart, among other things.

Thus she performed, among other things, the soprano parts in the oratorio Messiah by George Frideric Handel, Johannes-Passion (BWV 245) by J.S. Bach and Carmina Burana by Orff. Her special love applies for the contemporary music, which she performs as a member of "Musikprojekt Aachen".
