Viola Roalie Adele Geisselbrecht was born in 2002 in Wels, Austria. She started to play and sing at a very young age. As her name is Viola, her first step into the world of music was to attend viola lessons but she also learnt to play the piano and the viola da gamba.

After singing in several school musicals, she had the great opportunity to participate in a casting for the children’s choir of the Landestheater in Linz and Viola was cast as a little fox and a frog in Janacek´s opera “The Cunning Little Vixen”. As a consequence, her passion for singing and acting started to grow so she took singing lessons with Andrea Wögerer, who remains to be her teacher until today. Apart from singing, Viola also love to act in school plays, play the viola in the orchestra and write stories.

Viola annually takes part in the Austrian competition Österreiche Jugendmusikwettbewerbe prima la musica, where she always got the best results possible in the nationwide selection. She was also allowed to sing at the premiere for the part of Amore in Gluck´s opera “Orfeo ed Euridice” in the Musiktheater in Linz.
