Werner Rollenmüller was born in Augsburg in 1966. He studied voice from 1985 to 1991 at the Leopold-Mozart-Konservatorium in his home town. After that he went to the Opernschule at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Stuttgart, while concurrently taking additional voice lessons form Kurt Moll in Cologne, aided by grants from the Richard-Wagner-Verband and the Deutscher Bühnenverein. In 1996, after a one-year stay in New York where he worked with Oren Brown, he launched his professional career as a concert and oratorio singer with the Domsingknaben in Augsburg and Mainz, the Heinrich Schütz Ensemble in Munich and the Frankfurter Cäcilienverein, among others.
From 1998 to 2001 Werner Rollenmüller once again began an “apprenticeship” and perfected his vocal technique in the studio of Jan-Hendrik Rootering. For four years then, he was on the roster as basso cantante at the Theater Pforzheim, moving on to an engagement in the Bavarian Radio Chorus.
As a recital singer, his favorite composer is Franz Schubert, having performed his “Schöne Müllerin”, “Winterreise” and “Schwanengesang” on frequent occasions.
Werner Rollenmüller has been a member of the Bavarian Radio Chorus since 2004.
