During a two-year stay in the United States, Jutta Neumann studied voice with Mariana Bushing, a faculty member at Peabody Institute in Baltimore. At the same time, she took part in several concerts in Washington D.C., including Händel’s “Messiah” and the oratorio “Elijah” by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.

She has sung the alto solos in the ʺMatthäus-Passionʺ under the direction of Roderich Kreile in guest performances with the Kreuzchor in Dresden. In addition to a number of works by Bach, her repertoire includes masses by Mozart, Schubert, Haydn and others.
