Ulrike Hofbauer was born in Bavaria and studied singing and voice teaching at the Universities  of  Wurzburg  and  Salzburg,  and  at  the  Schola  Cantorum  Basiliensis  in Basle. The teachers who influenced her most profoundly were Sabine Schutz, Evelyn Tubb  and  Anthony  Rooley;  further  musical  insights  were  provided  by  Christina Pluhar und Andrea Marcon.

Ulrike now lives in Basle and has performed as a soloist with Singer Pur, Collegium Vocale  Gent,  L’Arpeggiata,  La  Chapelle  Rhénane,  L’Orfeo  Barockorchester  and
Cantus Coelln amongst others. 
Her versatility as a singer is documented in radio recordings, CDs and DVDs.
Currently  she  is  devoting  much  of  her  energy  to  her  own  baroque  ensemble ‘savādi...’, withwhom she won the Early Music Competition in York in 2003 and also
the  Van  Wassenaer  Concours  in  The  Hague  in  2004.  ( www.savadi.net ).  She  directs larger-scale  projects  with  her  newly  founded  ensemble  &cetera  (www.ensemble-etcetera.com).
