Chorleiter

Frank Szafranski was born in Berlin. He received his musical education at conservatories in Berlin and Dresden in professional classical singing. In the following years he was commissioned as a regular guest performer at the Stadttheater Freiberg,  the Staatstheater Cottbus, the Landestheater Eisenach, the Staatsschauspiel Dresden, the Theater Bautzen and the Stadttheater Görlitz. He has sung such roles as Lenski, Count Almaviva and Ravel’s Gonzalve.

Frank Szafranski has been a member of the choir of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin since 2000. His repertoire as a singer includes baroque, classical and romantic oratorios. He collaborates regularly with various choirs and concert organizations. As a song specialist, he gives particular attention to  classic German “Lieder”.

In guest performances of the Berlin State Opera in Spain, he had an opportunity to learn the  language and about Spanish culture. Encouraged by this, he began to occupy himself with Spanish music intensively. In April 2010 he, together with a group of open, culturally minded people, founded the German-Spanish Choir of Berlin in its current form, and took on the position of artistic director.
