Emma Kirkby’s singing career was unexpected. During her studies of classical philology in Oxford, she took every opportunity to sing, particularly polyphonic works of the renaissance. During a short period of her classical philology lectureship, she was lucky since she met pioneer groups of early music with expressive singing voices and historical lute, wind and string instruments. Nowadays, she can look back on decades of being a successful singer who, due to her unique voice and expressivity of her interpretations, fascinates the audience all around the world.

Emma Kirkby is an enthusiastic and inspiring lecturer. Worldwide, she has been invited to numerous master courses and academies where she has been dedicated to promote young musical talents. She has also been closely linked to the Neuburg Summer Academy for many years and she has always been looking forward to coming back to this beautiful place in order to spend an intensive music week with her lecturer colleagues and participants.
