Nadim Aizarani is a German-Lebanese tenor. Since childhood, he has shown a great passion for classical singing. He pursued studies in singing and violin at the Lebanese National Higher Conservatory of Music. During his higher education in biology as well as theater and film at the Lebanese American University, he sang lead roles in musicals and operettas (Nankipu in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado, Christian in Moulin Rouge! The Musical) and performed as a soloist and choir member in classical concerts given by the Lebanese American University choir.
He then moved to Germany where he sang in classical concerts performed by the Camerata Carolina choir of Heidelberg University and completed his masters and later his Ph.D. in molecular biology in Freiburg where he took singing lessons with the soprano Wilma Rueda. In collaboration with the guitarist Alejandro Caldas, he arranged and interpreted traditional Arabic, Andalusian, and Spanish songs from different periods for classical guitar and tenor voice to make this music more accessible to Western audiences. He and Caldas performed these songs on a tour in Germany. This program was performed several times at the Musikhochschule Freiburg and in Caldas’ master’s degree final concert at the Musikhochschule Freiburg.
Nadim took part in an opera/Lieder masterclass given by German soprano Edda Moser. His interests lie in the Bel canto repertoire, which includes operas by Donizetti and Bellini. He is a current student of renowned voice teacher Jack LiVigni.
