René Perler (Bass-Baritone)

Born: 1972 - Fribourg/Freiburg, Switzerland

The Swiss bass-baritone, René Perler, began his vocal studies at the age of 14 with Cécile Zay. He then studied in Berne, London and Zürich with Jakob Stämpfli, Horst Günter, Rudolf Piernay, and László Polgár. At the moment, he works with Margreet Honig in Amsterdam and Lucerne. René has got a Masterís degree in musicology and history of the University of Fribourg. He was given the main four Swiss vocal scholarships and won prizes at the International Johannes Brahms Competition in Pörtschach (A) 2001 and at the Joseph Suder Song Competition in Nuremberg 2002.
