The funkband "Grump Junction" Roskilde,
Brage's first experience with music was in a rock band, where, as a
schoolboy, he played the drums. In time, and with his studying of singing,
it gradually became a profession. For a while his life was a mad mixture
of jazz, rhythm and blues, rock and roll, dance music, musicals, operetta,
lieder and opera, until his singing teacher finally declared that he was
ready to fly. In other words, start auditioning. He then parked the drum
sticks -- temporarily, anyway -- and concentrated on singing.
Christian spent several years in both The National
Danish Radio Choir and, simultaneously, working with the Jutland Opera
Chorus in Aarhus. Also during this time, he worked as a concert soloist
while also doing a musical or opera role now and then.
In 2003 he moved to Malmö, Sweden and started
immediately to work with the opera houses in both Malmö and Gothenburg.
In 2006 he handed in his resignation to the Danish Radio Choir and has
been freelancing since then, mostly in Sweden.
In 2009 he was involved in the forming of the soloist
ensemble Eustars, a vision of the
Swedish bass-baritone Per-Anders Hedlund.
