Kateřina Blížkovská

Kateřina Blížkovská, Czech mezzo-soprano and choral conductor, has been studying  early music with Nicolas Achten (Voice, Brussels), and choral conducting with Luc Anthonis (Antwerp). 

She has been invited to record, sing as a soloist and chorus member with ensembles such as European Hanseatic Ensemble, Scherzi Musicali, Ad Mosam, Arcanum, Myosotis, Fluctus and others. She has been heard on stages of festivals such as Automne musical de Spa, Musiq3, Dag Utopia, the International Bach Contius Festival, and Nuit blanche de Paris. 

She has been directed the ensembles Arcanum, Aziliz, as well as her own: Ruah, Catharsis and Der kleine Hammerchor. 

Through masterclasses with various institutions and artists (Chapelle Reine Elisabeth, Dorothee Mields, Reinoud Van Mechelen, Els Crommen), she explores repertoire from early renaissance to contemporary, concentrating on historically informed performance practice. A special interest of the young singer lies in baroque gestures (Sigrid T’Hooft), as well as accompanying her own singing, on the luth and the baroque guitar. 

Passionate about chamber music and the beauty of the human voice, she has founded various ensembles, including the octet Ensemble Catharsis; the choir Ensemble Ruah; and Four Beers and a Glass of Wine (founding member), and others.
