The Belgian soprano Irene Carpentier's repertoire focuses mainly on the performance of concert and oratorio. She has already worked with well-known conductors and musicians, such as Ed Spanjaard, Peter Eötvös, Nicolas Fink, Thomas Hengelbrock, Graham Johnson, Dimitri Liss, Filip Rathé, Frank Agsteribbe, Nicolas Achten, Pietro Rizzo, Jos Van Veldhoven & Jan Vuye.

In addition to her great passion for the sacred repertoire, Irene Carpentier can also inspire the audience with her moving interpretations of the song and opera repertoire. She regularly gives recitals and has worked in productions for Muziektheater Transparant, the Flemish Opera, Les Ballets C de la B and Ensemble Leporello. As part of her own production house, she worked on Zout and, in collaboration with the Flemish opera, Gretel the Witch, an opera for children aged 8 and above. She sang the role of Gretel.
I will happily help you to improve the technical processes of your singing or speaking, so you would feel freer and enjoy expressing yourself. I offer private coaching in English, German and Dutch; since 2020 also online.
Currently, there are no courses planned in English. However, I gladly answer your request.
My work as a singing teacher and voice coach started in 2007, guiding singers in their search for their voice, helping amateur as well as professional singers. Many of my students have become professional singers themselves. As a vocal coach, I support the Bach Choir in Siegen since 2021.
Professional speakers (e.g. teachers, lecturers, etc.) are also among my students and can benefit greatly from the exercises for the speaking voice...

[...] Auch Momente anrührender Innigkeit bleiben in Erinnerung: Sopranistin Irene Carpentier sang das "Stetit puella" mit feingliedriger stimmlicher Flexibilität, tadellos ihr "Dulcissime", und ihr "In trutina" hätte persönlicher nicht sein können.
