The Ensemble „Die Mimusen“ is founded in Summer 2021. Due to the Corona Pandemic and the fact that events couldn’t take place, Denise Seyhan decided to film the song-cycle “Seven early songs” by Alban Berg. With the pianist Philip Dahlem and the actress Michelle Brubach she found perfect artist partners. For that videoproject she got grants among others from “Deutsche Orchesterstiftung” and her living town Karlsruhe. The successfully preview was in january 15th in the Zieglersaal in Karlsruhe.

Due to the decision of Michelle to leave the ensemble because of personal reasons in autumn 2022 Henrietta Teipel has taken the acting part.

With “Die rosa Gefahr – ein musikalischer Theaterabend” (“The pink danger – a musical theater evening”) with the oevre of female composers, the Ensemble gave its debut on the concert stage. They want to make music visible and figure out new shapes of giving concerts. They want to enrich the traditional Song-Recital with acting interludes to entertain more and to give more informations to the audience.  For that they got a grant by GVL/Neustart Kultur and the Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden Württemberg.
The Premiere was on 19th of february 2022 and the audience was really enthusiastic.
