Sylvia Teaching Santa Fe

Sylvia Greenberg during Masterclass at Santa Fe Opera

Israeli soprano Sylvia Greenberg and American pianist/conductor David Aronson have been working and performing together since meeting in Zurich in 1978. Whether working individually or as a team, Greenberg’s technical expertise and Aronson’s interpretive approach combine to offer young singers (and pianists!) a unique, well-rounded learning experience. In addition, their international background allows for exceptional insight into preparing a career in Europe, with tips and advice on auditioning, agents, young artists programs, etc.

Their focused yet light-hearted approach has met with great success among both students and teachers throughout the world.

In addition to being invited to teach at various institutions, the artists – together with soprano Rosemarie Danziger – founded the Vienna-Tel Aviv Vocal Connection, a young singers’ workshop in Israel.

We invite you to get in touch with any inquiries!


David and Sylvia have released an album of Lieder based around past residents of their apartment building in Vienna. Included are songs by Bruno Walter, Erich Korngold, and Gustav Mahler.
