Album Notes
South African dramatic coloratura soprano, Michelle Veenemans, hailed as “The Nightingale of South Africa” by the South African media, has appeared in numerous recitals, oratorio concerts, opera and operetta concerts and charity gala evenings collaborating with various South African orchestras and ensembles.

Michelle Veenemans’s singing has been described as “exhilarating” by Artslink SA, as ”one of South Africa’s most entertaining sopranos” by the SA Jewish Report, as a “prima donna and 'drama queen' deluxe” by the Cue Newspaper, as “a superb interpreter” by Beeld Newspaper and “having an unusual voice” by the Rapport. Singing the role of the Queen of the Night in Namibia the Algemeine Zeitung writes, “... She interprets the difficult and dramatic coloratura soprano magnificently and creates a spontaneous burst of applause...”.

She is an admired exponent of oratorio, opera and operetta arias and established her reputation in showpieces such as Mozart’s Konstanze, and the Queen of the Night, Offenbach’s Olympia, Gounod’s Juliette, Verdi’s Gilda and Bernstein’s Cunegonde.

As a concert artist, Ms Veenemans has performed for Musica Festiva’s concert series It’s Opera, and Organ Fanfare. For Martin Schönberg she starred in Ballet Theatre Afrikan’s Hooked on Classics, and for Classic FM in association with the Chamber Orchestra of South Africa she gave a special Christmas Concert. She also featured in Classic FM's Operetta Extravaganza with Salon Five in Johannesburg. She sang the role of Die Königin der Nacht in Mozart’s opera Die Zauberflöte for Pro Musica Productions at the Roodepoort Theatre, and for Classic Music Productions at the National Theatre of Namibia to great acclaim.

In addition, Ms Veenemans sang numerous operetta concerts for Fanie Smit Musiekproduksies and RSG i.a. at the Oude Libertas Amphitheatre, Stellenbosch and the ZK Matthews Concert Hall in Pretoria; she gave recitals at the National Arts Festival in Grahams Town, a Lieder Recital for the University of South Africa's (UNISA) Music Foundation, and starred in the Dance for a Cure concert series at the State Theatre in Pretoria and at the Lyric Theatre in Johannesburg. She featured in the Burger-Pops concerts at the Artscape Theatre Centre and in the Afri-Klassiek concert at the Grand West Arena in Cape Town. Ms Veenemans had the great honour to perform for the former South African President, Mr Thabo Mbeki.

Ms Veenemans has made television broadcast recordings for kykNET’s Reik na die Sterre series, including a Christmas Special programme and a Classical Special programme. Ms Veenemans has recorded four CDs, Schenkt man sich Rosen, a collection of operetta arias, Lentelied, a collection of mainly Afrikaans art songs, Bravura!, a compilation of opera arias and the Jingle Jazz Christmas Album.

She received vocal training from soprano Anita Nobel in Bonn, Germany and also trained in ensemble singing at the Musikschule in Bonn under Ms Nobel.

She holds a Masters Degree in German Literature from the University of Pretoria and a certificate in Digital Music Production from Steinberg.
