The link to classical music seems to be very easy to figure out. The 2 Violins and the Violoncello were the perfect String Trio and they startet early to play classical chamber music as well as in youthorchestras.
Today the Schuen Family combine their Concerts with vocal and istrumental classical music.
Elisabeth and Andrè are now both classical singers, studying at the Mozarteum Salzburg and working very successful as soloists.
With the age of six Elisabeth got her first Violin lessons at the music school of Bruneck and further on with Irene Troi (Concentus Musicus). After the "Matura" in 1999 started studying singing at the Tiroler Landeskonservatorium in Innsbruck with Johanna Rutishauser.
In 2000 she moved to the Mozarteum Salzburg and studied with Regina Hopfgartner, where she got her Teaching diploma in 2004. Since then she is working with Prof. Kurt Widmer in Basel und continues the "Magisterstudium" in Salzburg.
As a Mezzosoprano/Alto Elisabeth concentrates on Oratory and Lied. She already gave several Concerts in Bolzano, Salzburg, Vaduz, Corvara, Bruneck and Linz.
As the Alto-soloist of the monastery St. Peter in Salzburg, as well as the "Salzburger Konzertgesellschaft"
she sang masses like J.M. Haydn, Requiem; W.A. Mozart, Requiem; J. Haydn, Nelson-, Theresien- and Nicolajmass. At the 22. international Bachfestival Schaffhausen (Swizzerland) she sang the Magnificat with the Winthertur Chamber Orchestra.
In Mai 2007 Elisabeth will be performing the Matthaeuspassion in Osaka (Japan).
