A young Czech mezzo-soprano, she learned flute and then operatic singing with Christine Kluge at music school in Prague. She continued her education at the Leos Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno and the Carl Maria von Weber University of Music in Dresden with Hendrikje Wangemann and Olaf Bär. She is a laureate of vocal competitions, including the Bohuslav Martinů Competition. She is equally at home in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century repertoire and nineteenth-century Lieder. She is a member and soloist of the Dresdner Kammerchor, under artistic director Hans-Christoph Rademann, and since 2015 she has worked closely with Václav Luks's Collegium Vocale 1704. She has appeared with those ensembles at prestigious festivals, such as the Salzburger Festspiele, Bachfest Leipzig, Bachfest Stuttgart, Resonanzen in Vienna and Utrecht Early Music Festival, and also at such venues at the Wiener Konzerthaus and Berliner Philharmonie. She has also taken part in performances of Vivaldi's opera Arsilda, regina di Ponto with Collegium 1704, presented on European stages. Since 2015, she has also been working with the German vocal ensemble Auditivvokal.
