As in the previous years the baritone, Christoph Murke, will also coach the MIMF workshop. He studied classical singing with Prof. Klebel at the Carinthian State Conservatory in Klagenfurt (KONSE). After his studies he went on tour as a soloist and choral ensemble member. His most important tour led him to Japan where for one and a half months he performed in the opera production of La Bohème in venues across the country, including Tokyo, Sapporo, Hiroshima and Kyoto, among others.
Christoph Murke has been active as a choral ensemble singer since his youth. As member of various groups, such as the a cappella group Die Neffen von Tante Eleonor, the Rock-Pop cover band Cross Out and the Blues-Funk band mOerkwürdig he gained stage experience.
Besides all this, Christoph works as a freelance vocal coach in Graz and Wolfsberg and is active as a voice teacher in all of Carinthia and Styria.
