The mezzo-soprano Regina Jakobi was born in Mannheim and studied Music Education at the Mannheim Musikhochschule and Musicology at the University of Heidelberg and the Free University of Berlin. She studied singing with Elsa Cavelti after receiving her diploma from the Basle Opera Studio and participated in masterclasses with Laura Sarti in London and with Daniel Ferro at the Juilliard School in New York. From 1984 to 1992 she taught at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, often working together with René Jacobs, who gave her opportunities for performance in Baroque opera. In 1991 she won first prize in the International Singing Contest of the Swiss Lyceum, followed by invitations for concerts and vocal recitals in Switzerland, Germany and elsewhere in Europe. Regina Jakobi has a repertoire that ranges from the Renaissance to the contemporary. She has collaborated in numerous broadcasts and won particular praise for her performance with Ulrich Eisenlohr of Schiller settings by Reichardt and Zumsteeg, precursors of Schubert.
