Ms. Fassbender joined the faculty of the in Frankfurt Conservatory (Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst) in 1999 and was director of the voice faculty from 2001-2011. Under her chairmanship, the vocal department received the Prize for Excellence from the state of Hessen for its unique and innovative method of training singers within the university setting in 2011. Hedwig Fassbender started her career as a lyric mezzosoprano (Cherubino, Sesto, Octavian, Carmen..), then gradually added some dramatic soprano roles to her repertoire (Isolde, Kundry, Sieglinde, Marie...). Known for her compelling stage-presence and first-rate musicianship, she has established herself as an ideal interpretor of Herodias (Salome), The Foreign Princess (Rusalka) and particularly Kostelnicka in Janacek's "Jenufa" during the last years.
