About August Schram

The unamplified voice and its creative use in opera, oratorio, film and theatre characterise August Schram’s artistic creations. The tenor trained in Berlin, Rostock and New York under Christiane Bach-Röhr and Neil Semer, lives for classical art forms and has a weakness for new media.

Hence his dedication to commitments at the opera houses of Giessen, Mainz, Darmstadt and Freiberg in Saxony, oratorio concerts i.e. with Ton Koopman, Helmuth Rilling and Bernhard Gfrerer, and his search for the present-day relevance of classical singing and contemporary modes of artistic expression.

August Schram loves to occupy himself with projects that deal with the fusion of applied arts, film and song.

Along with his work as a producer and co-producer of short films and documentaries, August Schram loves to work with young composers such as Alin Gherman, artists like Stephanie Winter, Daniel Domig, Coelestine Engels and movie makers like Daniel Moshel and Axel Stummer.

August Schram is a passionate sailor and has successfully participated in international regattas as well as European and world championships with his Melges 24 “Cold Duck”
