History & Biography

Our History

SuonaVoce® was first founded as an idea to promote young artists and facilitate performances for them. Afterwards the brand registration took place in late 2014.
In Germany, however, there are a considerable number of companies, agencies and organisations competing with similar activities. That is why becoming an artist agency seemed not to be what we were looking for.

Since we have family in Australia and talk to them and many friends in the music business, we learned that artists and musicians from both sides would like to tour the partner country and play concerts if there weren’t so many “but’s”! The idea to connect people and strengthen the cultural relations between Australia and Germany was born.

Ralf holds a university degree in music and is a state-certified music teacher from the University of Theatre and Music in Munich and has been employed with the Bavarian Radio in the Munich Radio Orchestra for 35 years. Especially in the last three decades he has developed a deep interest in Australia, its people and its culture. This development was made possible for him by his family in Australia.

During his career with the Bavarian Radio (Munich Radio Orchestra), he has been given additional roles such as staff councillor, delegate to the German Orchestral Association (DOV), contract negotiator for the orchestras and finally orchestra board member. Working with the management, organising concert tours, engaging soloists and conductors and developing programmes brought him very early to the core of the idea of how to bring people and cultures closer together.

We believe in Change! We believe that business and industry, as well as politics, are made by humans for humans and should always remain human. We believe that this goal can only be achieved with human interaction that brings joy and fulfilment, peace and understanding.

Our Mission

To bring together people in business, politics and society between Australia, Germany and New Zealand through culture and music. Appreciation for ethnic and cultural treasures of these countries should be the basis for new encounters.

In order to achieve our goals, it is our task to actively approach all our employees with a lot of persuasiveness and motivation and take them with us on the mission.

Our Vision

We believe that culture and music is the only international collective language that can achieve this goal for all communities of humans. Without community, there is no good future for industry and business either. We believe in the necessity to pass this idea on as a role model through education and culture in dealing with each other and as an inheritance for our children, for generations to come. The rapprochement of these three developed countries – Australia, New Zealand and Germany and Europe – should serve as a blueprint to have a positive impact on all parts of our world.
