With her special interest in creative interpretations of classical compositions and an innovative approach to live performance, Amsterdam-based singer Nora Fischer has been developing an adventurous performance practice. Using her voice as a versatile instrument, she performs music from the 16th century up to the numerous compositions that have been written for her today. Nora is passionate about new music and has been working with artists and composers in this scene such as JacobTV, Louis Andriessen, Steve Reich, Michel van der Aa and the Kronos String Quartet.
Nora initially studied classical singing at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, but left the school early to broaden her vocal technique at the Complete Vocal Institute in Copenhagen. This course enabled her to use her voice in a larger variation of musical genres. In 2013 she graduated from the Music Master for New Audiences and Innovative Practice at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague. Nora also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Musicology and Philosophy, completed at the University of Amsterdam in 2009.
In recent years, Nora has developed a worldwide concert practice, performing a wide range of projects. She regularly takes part in contemporary operas and stage works, and has sung with orchestras and ensembles worldwide as a soloist, often premiering compositions that were composed especially for her. Her solo concerts were heard all over Europe, India, Indonesia, and beyond. She also collaborated with various theatre companies to investigate the meeting points of new music and theatre. These, and many other, collaborations and solo programmes have taken her to the most prestigious concert halls as well as pop festivals and theatre venues in the Netherlands and abroad. Be it the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Lowlands Pop Festival, Into the Great Wide Open, the prestigious Holland Festival, an underground squat center in London or a mysterious forest at the Oerol Theatre Festival… Nora will make it her own.
Nora also regularly performs solo concerts singing baroque, classical and contemporary vocal repertoire; ranging from straight-forward concert programmes to theatrical performances and genre-crossing collaborations.
