Her love for music and especially to choir singing, influences both her professional and her private life. Having had Professor Helmut Wulz as teacher and mentor, Rita Hartmann, who has been a member of the A-Cappella Chor Villach since her time at secondary school, was able to learn and grow from the ‘Wulz-ian’ choir tradition.
As a dedicated choir singer (participating in other choirs as well), she has acquired an extensive repertoire in choir music, as well as having a learning interest in musical interpretation and conducting.
Rita Hartmann has been able to pass on her excitement and love for choir music to her students, being a music teacher at the BAKIP/BAfEP Klagenfurt, where she has directed the school choir for decades, successfully leading it through various competitions.
Highly valued in the professional field, she directs other lay's choirs routinely and with superior ease and understands how to reach a maximum of quality in a minimal amount of time. Her constant interest in what is new, like her uncanny feel for the depth of music casts a spell over both, singers, and audience members and touches everybody's heart.
The music, and the singer's voices are in best hands with Rita Hartmann.
