Originally from Germany, Ingrid started having music lessons as young as 4 years old and began to play classical piano and sing
in local choirs from the age of eight. Her first recording experience dates from that time, singing the solo voice in an arrangement
for accapella choir on the town’s record. Throughout her childhood she performed in church choirs and public concerts at the local music school. In 1989 Ingrid left Germany for London where she took up the alto saxophone .
