Andreas Weller (Tenor)

Born: Stuttgart, Germany

The German tenor, Andreas Weller, received his first singing lessons with the Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben (Professor Gerhard Wilhelm). He began his vocal studies with Prof. Bruce Abel at the State Conservatory of Music and the Performing Arts in Stuttgart, where he concurrently studied choral and orchestral conducting. He completed his postgraduate study in music with Prof. James Wagner at the Adacemy of Music and Theater in Hamburg from 1998 to 2000, graduating with distinction and receiving a diploma in lied. From October 2000 to February 2002, he was a student in Prof. James Wagner’s solo vocal class at the Academy of Music in Lübeck, Germany.

Since then, Andreas Weller has become an internationally sought-after Evangelist and oratorio soloist. He has collaborated with Frieder Bernius (Stuttgarter Musikpodium), Helmuth Rilling (International Bach Academy), Marcus Creed (RIAS Kammerchor / Concerto Köln), Daniel Harding (Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen), Hartmut Höll (Hugo Wolf Academy), Roger Vignoles and the King’s Singers, and has performed at renowned international festivals, including the Agora Festival of IRCAM in Paris, the Resound Festival in Schaffhausen, Toronto’s Soundstream Festival, and the Maggio Mozartiano Internationale in Naples.

Andreas Weller has appeared on numerous CD productions and won first prize at the Elise Meyer Competition and the Michel Vocal Competition in Hamburg in 1999. In February 2002, he was awarded a scholarship by the Kunststiftung (Arts Foundation) in Baden Württemberg.
