Viennese contralto Valerie Ketter started her singing studies as a student of Elisabeth Kinsky. She then went on to study at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien with Prof. Franz Lukasovsky. She later studied with Douglas Hines, James Moore and Christian Sist, before moving to London in 2010. Since then Valerie has been training with Paula Anglin and is now a member of the Brighton Opera Singers' Studio.

Participating in workshops with Andrew Sinclair and Delia Lindon, she has continued to expand upon her experiences and accrued a notable international presence performing in operas and giving recitals in Austria, Spain, France, Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom. Her unusual and distinctive deep, rich mellifluous voice and her versatile dramatic abilities and intense stage presence, make her performances unforgettable.

Her favourite roles include Dritte Dame in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte; Erda in Wagner's Das Rheingold and the title role in Britten's The Rape of Lucretia.
