Born: September 11, 1941 - Zürich, Switzerland

The Swiss soprano, Yvonne Perrin, studied at the Conservatory of Lausanne with R. Girard from 1958 to 1965, at the Conservatory of Fribourg with Juliette Bise from 1966 to 1968, in Frankfurt a.M. and at the International Summer Academy in Salzburg.

In 1963 Yvonne Perrin began her concert career. From 1963 to 1971 she was a soloist in the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne under Michel Corboz. She undertook expanded concert tours, sang in Swiss and French music centres, as well as in Rome, Bologna, Pavia, Rimini and Lisbon and completed a South Africa tour.

Yvonne Perrin was considered as good Bach interpreter, but her concert repertoire included many parts from the wide range of oratorios, as well as Lieder singing.
