Selina Ott (Trumpet)

As first woman ever in the seventy-year history of the ARD International Music Competition Munich Selina Ott was awarded 1st Prize in the category trumpet in September 2018 at the age of only 20.

Subsequently, she has been invited to perform with leading orchestras such as the WDR Symphony Orchestra, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, and the Czech Philharmonic, at  international festivals like Bachfest Leipzig, Grafenegg, Rheingau Musik Festival and SWR Schwetzinger Festspiele, and at concert halls such as Wiener Konzerthaus and Musikverein Wien.

Selina Ott started her music studies at the age of five years on the piano. One year later, she began to study trumpet with her father Erich Ott. She continued her studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna with Martin Mühlfellner, at the University of Music in Karlsruhe with Reinhold Friedrich, and at the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna (MUK) with Roman Rindberger.

In addition, she attended masterclasses of Gabor Tarkövi, Jens Lindemann, Kristian Steenstrup, Allen Vizzutti, Bo Nilsson, Hans Gansch, Guillaume Couloumy, and Klaus Schuhwerk.

In her young career Selina Ott has been awarded eight times the first prize of the Austrian prima la musica competition in the category trumpet solo on regional and national level, and she received the first prize of the 2017 Lions Music Prize.
