The young Latvian soprano Aija Veismane was encouraged to study music by her family members, musicians already in the third generation. At first she began as a violin player, then understood that singing for her is easier to achieve.
In the year 2014 she obtained an early music soloist diploma at the Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music (singing class by opera singer Aira Rūrāne). She devoted herself to opera singing with Axel Everaert at the Conservatoire in Maastricht, The Netherlands. Aija focuses more on early music repertoire, especially the interpretation of the baroque music, and has taken parts in many master classes with recognizable teachers in this field, such as P.Esswood, L.U.Mortensen, G.Anders, K.Wessel and others.
As a soloist/ensemble singer she has cooperated with the “Balthasar Neumann Choir”, “Camerata Vocale Bozen”, “Riga Chamber Choir "Ave Sol", "Collegium Choro Musici Riga", "Meesters en gezellen", "William Byrd Consort", “State choir Latvia”, "Pūtēju orķestris Rīga", Latvian chamber orchestra Vidzemes Kamerorķestris" and “Kesselberg Ensemble”.
Recently Aija finished early music studies with Gemma Bertagnolli and Peter Kooij at “University of Arts Bremen”. She organizes many music projects by herself and is giving concerts with many music ensembles in Europe as a freelance artist. Besides music she loves to dance in early dance group “Ballare” and take long walks on the Baltic Sea coast.
The magazine Weser Kurier writes that performance of Aija “bribes [the listener] with her soft painted cantilenas and transparent pianissimo of her voice”.
