Barbro Marklund has for many years been Professor of Singing at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo and has also taught at the Opera Schools in Oslo and Stockholm. Singers travel from many parts of the world to study with her and she gives about ten masterclasses a year in different countries including Great Britain, Russia, Australia, Canada, Malaysia and Germany.
Marklund is much sought after as a concert singer, with a broad repertoire that includes Lieder, oratorio and contemporary music. She is also a popular adjudicator and lecturer and has frequently represented associations in Scandinavia and other parts of the world.
Amongst Marklund’s pupils are many who have won prestigious awards in international competitions such as The Belvedere Competition in Vienna and the Wigmore Hall Song Competiton in London.
In 2015 Marklund started a comprehensive project of a graded repertoire of opera arias for young singers for soprano, tenor, mezzo and baritone/bass. The soprano book will be released around the time of the ICVT2017 congress in Stockholm.
