She is also a composer and choreographer and is currently writing her own musical theater work entitled “Ixchel” – a journey with the Mayan Goddess.
Wonju Yun, Soprano, studied music education and singing at Changwon National University. She attended the opera school at the Vienna Conservatory with Prof. Klaus Kment and prof. Otto Fritz (Diploma with Honors) Member of Seoul Musical performance in South Korea, concerts with Masan and Changwon Symphony.
Sayoko Akimoto, solo pianist, violinist, chamber musician and song accompanist native to Tokyo, came to Vienna to study at the Prayner Conservatory with Prof. Sung Suk Kang and subsequently Prof. Robert Lehrbaumer, with whom she completed her diploma as a concert pianist with distinction in 2019. Since March 2020 she has been studying with Ms. Tamara ATSCHBA and performing both as a soloist and with orchestra in Vienna, Salzburg, Lower Austria and Burgenland, as well as in France.
Thomas Nothbauer, saxophone, studied clarinet and saxophone at the Vienna Music University. As an orchestral player, he toured all over Europe, Japan and South Africa. As a sax player, he leads different projects from jazz to funk – including a gig with Joe Zawinul as a highlight.
Moritz Wenzel, guitar, founder of Creamy Business, the Uncivilized-Funk-Pop band, creates homemade songs that cover the previously mentioned genres in a rather uncivilized manner. This allows them to acoustically express their desire to dance, while instrumentally telling stories that elevate to another dimension. “Life is playing the music”.
