Satriya Krisna

Tenor, Samling Artist Programme: 2019

From the first day of the Samling Artist Programme, I was very happy with all the arrangements. I had many great tools and new approaches for my artistry in singing and the way to see the artsongs, opera and acting. Samling Artist Programme helps me to keep myself in the circle of the great artists, and is a very great family to support you and put you in the correct path


Indonesian tenor Satriya Krisna obtained his Bachelor of Arts in music in 2015, and master’s in 2017 under the tutelage of Henny Yana Diemer at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam (CvA) after obtaining a degree in architecture. He then continued his training as part of the Young Artist Programme at the National Opera Studio in London (2017/18). He won Third Prize, the Audience Prize and the Student Jury’s Prize at the International Student LiedDuo Competition 2017 with duo pianist Felix Justin.
