Werner Angerer – Sounddesign
Maiken Beer – Violoncello
Has fallen in love with her instrument when she was about six years old while listening to the famous Dvořák cello concerto. Since then, she has not let go of it, and she works consistently to expand her scope and musical horizon. At Studio Dan, she has been appreciated for her intensive cello-performance since “Gruntz”. For years up to (almost) every madness on stage. Enthusiasm and perseverance are among her greatest strengths.

I am right-handed and left-footed, probably because my mother is a relearned left-handed female. In SV Weinitzen in the autumn season 1999/2000, I had plunged four goals and assisted in just as many. My biggest success though is being runner-up at the Stryrian Mixed Badminton Cup 1997. In 2013 I was by far the last at the Roman race in the South Styria, but handicapped by a recurring knee injurie. Otherwise, I'm interested in music.
Doris Nicoletti – Flutes
Teaches quite classical and plays mostly contemporary, but never wants to be too specialized and can therefore be heard in the stylistically diverse formations. Generally preferres to be an ensemble member over being a soloist. Because the gut feeling usually wins, she does what she loves and loves what she does.
