Magdalena Schenk-Bader was first inspired by the magnificence of baroque music while pursuing an educational degree in Music and German studies. After her graduation, she devoted herself fully to early music by studying baroque violin with Susanne Scholz, and gained further musical inspiration from courses and projects with Pauline Nobes, Kati Debretzeni, Odile Edouard, Stanley Ritchie, Maggie Faultless, Riccardo Minasi, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Paul Agnew and Petra Müllejans, among others.
She performs regularly with chamber music ensembles and various baroque orchestras such as Telemannisches Collegium Michaelstein, Pauliner Barockorchester and camerata lipsiensis, and plays in opera productions such as those with Nationaltheater Weimar. As a violinist and violist she has performed at festivals like Grandezze e Meraviglie in Modena, Greenwich Early Music Festival, Goldberg Festival Gdansk, Pavia Barocca, Baroque Arts Festival Sofia, Korkyra Baroque Festival, Oviedo Barroco and Echter'Barock. In 2012, she was invited to join I Giovani dell'Academia Montis Regalis and she was a chosen to be a member of European Union Baroque Orchestra (EUBO).
What Magdalena enjoys most about Camerata are those special moments when many different musical ideas suddenly merge into one unique sound.
