Discover the voice
Welcome to Alexandrina Simeon
Alexandrina Simeon was born in Varna (Bulgaria) into a family of musicians – so at the age of 5, her parents both orchestra musicians, started teaching her how to play the violin. After a classical singing education she focused on her jazz singing studies with Harriet Lewis, Karen Edwards and Sandy Patton and took part in the jazz choir of the Munich “Richard-Strauss-Konservatorium”.
Quite soon she started singing in various jazz ensembles in Augsburg and Munich and with her own quintet (the Alexandrina Simeon Quintett), she is a welcome guest to international jazz festivals in Germany, Austria and Bulgaria. But she is not only familiar with jazz.
„…her voice can be powerful, can yearn wistfully or can be sky-high shouting for joy…“
„When I think of what actually defines charisma in the voice, I think of Alexandrina. When I think of masterfully musicality in performance, composition and charm, I think of Alexandrina.”
– Sandy Patton, Vocalist/Professor, Bern (Switzerland)
„Her voice is like a bluesy caressing, a souly scratching and a jazzy attacking.“
– Nordhannoveranische Zeitung
„… what sticks out above everything else is the convincing but at the same time extremely versatile and confident voice of the vocalist and her strong presence.“
„A miracle of expressiveness… Simeon’s voice touches and moves the audience with a familiar confession when she gets to the heart of the melody.“
– Südkurier Friedrichshafen
