The Franco-german singer Marine Madelin comes from a musical family. She discovered her love for music and dance when her family moved in next to a music school. She then started learning the piano, later the recorder, and discovered ballet. Her enthusiasm for singing led her to the Parisian music college, where she discovered her passion for the stage. After the Baccalauréat she started her studies at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg, where she made her first professional experiences as a soloist. Since 2014, she has studied singing with Anna Korondi at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin, with whom she also takes the contemporary music class and Wolfram Rieger’s Lied class.
Marine Madelin sings in different formations on international stages. Her interests focus on Early Music, the Lied and Melodie, and vocal contemporary music. She founded the Ensemble Callìope — with baroque harp, theorbe and baroque guitar — in Berlin. She forms a duo with her sister Cécile, also a soprano, with whom she performs renaissance, baroque or romantic repertoire.
In 2016, she was awarded the scholarship Deutschlandstipendium and was chosen for the Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Foundation, which supports young artists in Berlin.
