Born in Munich, Uta Jungwirth was only eight years old when her parents gave her a harp, the instrument to which she has dedicated her entire musical career since that time. As a child, she took her first lessons from Maria Graf. During her school years, she won prizes at Jugend musiziert and became a member of the Bavarian State Youth Orchestra. Following secondary school she began her studies in Maria Graf’s harp class at the Academy of Music and the Performing Arts in Hamburg. At the academy competition in Hanover, she won second prize, and her work was then furthered through solo and chamber music concerts. The experience gained from participation in international youth orchestras, a trainee position at the Hamburg State Opera and an assistant’s job in the Philharmonic Orchestra of Kiel enabled her, even before completing her studies, to assume the post of solo harpist with the Munich Radio Orchestra under Marcello Viotti. Back in Munich, she intensified her chamber music activity, playing in the ensemble Villa Musica and making music, among other partners, with Ulf Hölscher.
