Now Playing: Opera Scores
The 3rd International Vocal Competition in Zdar nad Sazavou brought a new bright talent to the eyes of the public. 2nd prize was given to a very young, yet incredibly talented Czech soprano Barbora Perna (1st and 3rd award obtained by older and already well-established opera artists from South Corea and Estonia).
Barbora Perná is a Czech soprano. She has studied at the Prague Conservatory of Music with the well-known teacher, opera soloist and founder of the Children Opera Prague Jirina Markova.
Barbora Perna has received numerous awards in both national and international vocal contests (including 1st prize at Prazsky pevec and Dusek Competition in Prague, also at the Iuventus Canti in Slovakia or 2nd prize at the International Vocal Competition in Zdar nad Sazavou as well as Jarmila Novotna Award at the International Antonin Dvorak Competition in Karlsbad).
She has performed in opera houses in Prague, Pilsen and Ostrava and also regularly perform concerts and solo recitals with both piano and orchestra.
Richard Pohl joined Barbora Perna as well as the other award winners Max An (tenor - South Corea) and Monika Evelin Liiv (Estonia) for a concert tour and shall include her in various other projects in the upcoming concert season as well. This is a talent not to be missed by anyone!
