    Maxine Bernstein

    A devoted advocate for opera and lieder, Ms. Bernstein has lived, performed and taught in New York, London, Paris, Vienna and now San Francisco. Born in London, her life in music began as a soprano, her international musical education culminating in her studies with Christa Ludwig. In recent years, she has mentored and coached extensively, integrating her broad knowledge of vocal development and repertoire with her mentoring and counseling experience. She now utilizes her long-term insights into the training of singers and the presentation of musical artists by directing the teaching and performance organization, LIEDER ALIVE!, which she founded in 2007.
