Sunday Bandstand 9 June 2024

Anabel Voigt began playing the Tenor Horn at the age of six at Klangwelt Orchestra School, her local music school with Alexander Richter. Given that there are no opportunities to study Tenor Horn in Germany, she went abroad to study in England. As a recipient of the Royal Birmingham Scholarship Award and also the first German Tenor Horn player.

2020 she began her Bachelor of Music in Instrumental Performance at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire under the direction of Helen Varley and Ian Porthouse. In autumn 2022 she went to Switzerland to do an exchange semester at the HSLU Luzern to study with Thomas Rüedi and Glenn van Looy.

Whilst she has been in the UK she has had the opportunity of playing with Tredegar Town Band and has also been able to play with Grimethorpe Colliery Band among other things for their CD recording (2022) and Brass Band Berner Oberland (Switzerland) and was part of the European Youth Brass Band as well as the 1st World Youth Brass Band in 2022. Additionally, 2022 she became German and European Champion with Brass Band Regensburg. In 2023 she was awarded the Craxton Memorial Trust award.

So far she had the pleasure of having Masterclasses with Tenor Horn specialist like Sheona White, Owen Farr and Tim deMaeseneer, as well as Roger Webster, Bastien Baumet and Sarah Willis.

Growing up with the influences of the German classical world leads Anabel to see what is possible on the Tenor Horn by always trying to explore repertoire from all genre's, eras and other instruments.

For her final year project she decided to produce a CD and we are featuring one of the tracks from the CD which she has titled  'Farbenspiel' which means  colour play through time and genre. To more about Anabel please take a look at her website   and further information about the CD can be found on this link:
