Jan Lund In his Own Words

At the academy of music, I started my education as a singer by studying the piano for 7 years!

After graduating as a pianist I started my second education, and graduated as a singer – tenor – three years later from the academy of music.

My career began with three years at The Royal Dansih Opera. I then decided to “go free-lance”, and I have been singing as such ever since.

During my career I have received several awards and prices. Amongst others: Spies foundation – Singer of the year 1994, Symphony Orchestra of Aalborg, Danish association of Opera-friends and Queen Ingrids Roman Foundation.

With the soprano Elsebeth Dreisig I have founded the small and very progressive opera-company “DogmeOpera”. She and I are also behind the duo; “Duetten på Pletten”.

Parallel to my singing career I graduated in 2009 with a master’s degree in “Elite vocal teaching” at The Royal Danish Academy of Music. Today I´m an associate professor at the very same place.

Privately I´m married to the multi-artist Mikael Melbye. We live part-time in the Copenhagen area and part-time in Tuscany, Italy with our Danish Farm Dog Totò.
