Yvonne ManfredaMezzo-soprano

Born in Eastern Tyrol, Yvonne Manfreda was asked by her music teacher to join the oratorio chorus of the place when she was 15 years old. From that moment on began her way as a singer which should lead her after studies at the Conservatory in Vienna to the Conservatory V. Sarajishvili in Tbilisi, Georgia, where she was the first student from an european country. Soon she was chosen for the Opera Studio in Tbilisi, where she performed in many operas such as: Matrimonio segreto (Cimarosa),Die Kluge (Orff), Die Zauberfloete (Mozart),Rigoletto (Verdi), La Traviata (Verdi),Le nozze di Figaro (Mozart), Keto da Kote (Dolidze), etc. She finished her studies with the Master in Solo Singing.

2011 she gave her European Debut with the title role of Carmen (Bizet) at the Traditional open air opera festival Gars am Kamp in Austria. The debut was a success and she was engaged for Maddalena (Rigoletto-Verdi) for the following season.The convincing Maddalena leaded to the next engagement as the Mezzo Soprano Soloist in the Requiem of Verdi in Rostock (Germany) where she received very good critics in the media.

2012 and 2013 were also the years of competitions, her participation in International Singing Competitions was crowned by the First Prize in Mantova, the Prize for the Best Singer Cat. B in Bologna and the Fedora Barbieri Prize in the Toscana, followed by an invitation to the Canto Festival in Umbria.

Her time as a soloist in the Childrens Musical Theatre in Vienna gave her a lot of stage experience, travelling all over Germany and Austria with her company.

Yvonne is giving concerts in Chamber Music with partners like Prof. Fritz Brucker, director of the Schubertbund Wien, Florian Krumpöck or the pianist Ketevan Sepashvili.
