Tanja Vogrin

The Slovenian mezzosoprano and harpist Tanja Vogrin studied singing with Dušanka Simonović, Jolanda Korat, Annemarie Zeller and Joanna Borowska-Isser, and classical harp with Dalibor Bernatović, Eva Hoffellner, Arcola Clark and Ágnes Polónyi.

In 2007 she finished her BA studies and in 2009 she acquired a master's degree in singing with honours from the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria.

Her passion for early music led her to study early vocal techniques and historical harps, which in turn led her to the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland, where she studied with Heidrun Rosenzweig and earned a specialized master’s degree in historical harps. In 2016 she finished her ensemble singing studies ‘AVES’ with Anthony Rooley and Evelyn Tubb and she is still involved with medieval vocal studies in the class of Kathleen Dineen.

Tanja Vogrin is known for accompanying herself on the harp and is a founding member of the ensemble Concerto di Margherita, whose focus lies in the reviving of self-accompaniment.

As a soloist or with various ensembles (Novantik, Alerion, Amar Corde, Neue Hofkapelle Graz, recreationBAROCK, La Cetra Basel, Austrian Baroque Connection, Cortesia, musica cubicularis…) she gives regular concerts throughout Europe.

Since 2016 she has been teaching baroque singing at the Department of Early Music at the J.J. Fux-Conservatory in Graz.
